3 1 Inroduion We are now reaonably ure ha greenhoue gaz aumulaion in he amophere i he aue of global warming, and ha he emperaure inreae reae damage o eoyem and eonomi aiviie. However, he preie relaionhip beween arbon onenraion and damage, he damage funion, i no well known, epeially for imporan inreae of emperaure, when irreveribiliie and nonlineariie are likely o our. For inane, he exenive urvey of he available eimaion of damage in he Sern Review (Sern [26]) highligh he exen of our ignorane a far a he damage funion i onerned. So i make ene o found environmenal poliy no only on he value of unerain marginal damage bu alo on he requiremen o mainain amopheri arbon onenraion under a erain eiling, hoen preiely o preven an exeive rie of he emperaure. Previou work were foued eiher on damage due o arbon aumulaion (Ulph and Ulph [1994], Hoel and Kverndokk [1996], Tahvonen [1997]) or on a onenraion arge (Chakravory, Magné and Moreaux [26a], [26b]). Bu here exi for ure damage before he eiling, o we ombine in hi model a onenraion eiling wih a damage funion under he eiling. A he onenraion eiling i impoed preiely o avoid aarophi diurbane of he limae and hene he eonomy, i make ene o aume ha damage remain relaively mall under he eiling, oherwie he eiling would have obviouly been illhoen, and ha hey are relaively well known. We onider a model in whih he energy requiremen of oiey an be aified by wo kind of reoure: a nonrenewable one, relaively heap bu polluing, le ay oal, and a renewable one, more expenive bu lean, le ay olar. We hooe a imple framework where he damage funion i linear for he mall damage ouring before he eiling, hi lineariy aumpion ogeher wih he lineariy of arbon aumulaion in he arbon ok 1 enabling u o obain lear reul. We are inereed in he ime pah of exraion of he polluing nonrenewable reoure, and of peneraion of he renewable one, bu alo in he iniial value and he ime profile of he arbon hadow o, and in he eniviy of hee variable o he ineniy of he marginal damage and he ringeny of he eiling. In a deenralized eup, he ounerpar of he arbon hadow o would be a uni arbon ax 1 Thi lineariy aumpion, whih mean ha he naural regeneraion rae of he amophere i onan, i learly reriive and i queioned boh by empirial work and he heoreial lieraure, ee e.g. Farzin and Tahvonen [1996] and Toman and Wihagen [2]. We keep i in hi paper beaue naural regeneraion i no a he hear of he queion we wan o adre. 1
4 applied o he nonrenewable reoure onumpion in order o implemen he opimal pah. The iniial value and he ime profile of hi arbon ax are a he hear of limae poliy, a well a i eniiviy o marginal damage and o he amopheri arbon onenraion objeive. Moreover, inuiion ugge ha aking ino aoun damage due o he onumpion of oal and impoing a eiling onrain on arbon onenraion hould aelerae he peneraion of lean renewable ubiue o he nonrenewable polluing energy. We wan o know if hi inuiion i orre in our framework where here i no endogenou ehnial progre and where he whole oal ok will be ulimaely exraed and onumed. The main reul are he following. Fir, o maer a lo 2. Whaever abundan or rare, if he renewable reoure i more expenive han he nonrenewable one a he eiling, i will never be ued before he end of he phae a he eiling, when he nonrenewable reoure beome o are ha he eiling will never be reahed again. On he onrary, if he renewable reoure i le expenive han he nonrenewable one a he eiling, i may even be uffiienly heap o be exploied before he eiling, in whih ae fir he nonrenewable reoure i exploied alone, eond boh reoure are ued ogeher before, a and afer he eiling, and finally he renewable reoure i exploied alone, afer he exhauion of he nonrenewable one. Seond, in all onfiguraion of o, he arbon hadow value i fir inreaing unil he eiling i reahed, hen i dereae during he phae a he eiling, and finally i abilize a a onan value afer he eiling. The iniial arbon hadow o i an inreaing funion of he value of he marginal damage, and a dereaing funion of he eiling: he higher he eiling, ha i he le ringen he onenraion arge, he lower he iniial arbon hadow o. Laly, onrary o he inuiion, higher marginal damage or a more ringen enenraion arge indue a delay in he peneraion of he lean renewable reoure and alo a delay in he omplee raniion oward lean energy. The paper i organized a follow. Seion 2 preen he model. Seion 3 and 4 are devoed o he udy of he ime pah of exraion of he nonrenewable reoure and ue of he renewable one in he wo ae of an abundan and a are renewable reoure. Seion 5 preen he ime profile of he arbon hadow o. Seion 6 onlude. 2 Alhough i i very diffiul o give preie figure for he repeive marginal o of he renewable and he nonrenewable reoure. 2
5 2 The model 2.1 Aumpion We onider an eonomy in whih he energy need an be aified by exploiing wo kind of primary reoure, a polluing nonrenewable reoure and a lean renewable one. Le oal be he diry reoure and olar be he lean one. Denoe by X() he available ok of oal no ye exploied a ime and by X,X >, he oal iniial endowmen: X X(). Le x() be i inananeou exploiaion rae: Ẋ() = x(). I average exploiaion o i aumed o be onan hene equal o i marginal o, and i denoed by x. Burning oal o produe energy generae a flow of new amopheri polluion proporional o he inananeou exploiaion rae. Le ζ be he uniary polluion onen of oal, o ha he flow of newly generaed polluion amoun o ζx(), adding o he amopheri arbon ok denoed by Z(). The amophere ha ome elf regeneraion apaiy we aume o be proporional o he polluion ok Z(). Le α be hi proporional rae of elf regeneraion. The dynami of he arbon ok i given by he differene beween he flow of newly produed polluion and he elf regeneraion effe: Ż() = ζx() αz(). Le y be he available flow of he renewable reoure and y() i exploiaion rae a ime : y y(). I average exploiaion o i aumed o be onan and i denoed by y. The o x and y inlude all he o neeary o deliver energy direly uable by he uer, ha i he exraion, proeing and delivery o, o ha he wo primary reoure may be een a perfe ubiue, and oal energy onumpion q() an be defined a: q() = x() + y(). The ondiion on x, y and y under whih i i opimal o exploi he diry reoure are deailed in ubeion 2.3 below. The inananeou onumpion q generae a gro urplu u(q) (meaured in moneary uni). The gro urplu funion i aumed o be wie differeniable, rily inreaing, rily onave and aifying he Inada ondiion lim q u (q) = +. We denoe by p he marginal gro urplu u 3
6 and by q d he demand funion, he invere of u. The amopheri arbon onenraion reae damage. Thee damage are of wo kind. Fir he arbon ok generae a eah ime a manageable welfare lo. To implify we aume ha hi welfare lo i proporional o he urren arbon onenraion Z(). Le hz(),h >, be hi inananeou manageable damage. Seond, would he arbon onenraion be higher han ome eiling Z, oiey would experiene a drai hange of he limae regime leading o aarophi damage. Suh an even an be een a an infinie welfare lo. In order o preven uh an ouome, oiey ik o he objeive of keeping he arbon onenraion Z() permanenly a mo equal o he euriy level Z. Z i of oure greaer han he iniial arbon onenraion Z : Z < Z. All he urplu, o and manageable damage are diouned a ome onan poiive oial rae of dioun ρ. 2.2 The oial planner problem The oial planner problem i o deermine he poliy maximizing he um of he diouned ne urplu while aking are of he euriy onrain, and read: W(X,Z ) = max Ẋ() = x() x() X() = X > given Ż() = ζx() αz() e ρ {u(x() + y()) x x() y y() hz()} d Z() = Z > given, Z > Z, Z Z() y > given, y y(), y(). Denoing by λ() he oae variable of X(), by µ() he oppoie of he oae variable of Z(), by ν() he Lagrange muliplier aoiaed o he eiling onrain and by γ x, γ y and γ y he Lagrange muliplier aoiaed o he poiiviy onrain, he urren value Lagrangian i given by: L = u(x() + y()) x x() y y() hz() λ()x() + γ x ()x() µ() (ζx() αz()) + ν() ( Z Z() ) + γ y() (y y()) + γ y ()y() 4
7 Fir order opimaliy ondiion and omplemenariy lakne ondiion read: u (x() + y()) = x + λ() + ζµ() γ x () (1) u (x() + y()) = y + γ y() γ y () (2) γ x (), x(), γ x ()x() = (3) γ y(), y y(), γ y() (y y()) = (4) γ y (), y(), γ y ()y() = (5) λ() = ρλ() (6) and he ranveraliy ondiion are: µ() = (ρ + α)µ() h ν() (7) ν(), Z Z(), ν() ( Z Z() ) = (8) lim e ρ λ()x() = (9) lim e ρ µ()z() =. (1) A uual wih a onan marginal exploiaion o of he nonrenewable reoure, he Hoelling rule redue o a ariy ren of oal λ() having o grow a a proporional rae equal o he rae of dioun. From (6) we ge: λ() = λ e ρ where λ λ(). Thu he ranveraliy ondiion (9) may be rewrien a: λ lim X() =. If oal ha ome value, ha i λ >, hen he oal ok mu be exhaued in he long run. Iniially, he arbon onenraion i below he eiling ine Z < Z. Hene on any iniial ime inerval [,) during whih Z() < Z, ν() = o ha equaion (7) beome µ() = (ρ+α)µ() h and an be inegraed ino: where µ µ(). µ() = [ µ h ρ + α ] e (ρ+α) + h, [,), (11) ρ + α Noe ha if he manageable damage effe i aben, ha i if h =, equaion (11) beome µ() = µ e (ρ+α), whih i nohing bu he expreion 5
8 obained in Chakravory e al. [26a], [26b], meaning ha he opimal arbon hadow o grow a a proporional rae equal o he um of he oial dioun rae and he naural aborpion rae when he arbon onenraion i below he eiling. In he preen eing, he arbon hadow o remain onan a he level h/(ρ+α) iff µ = h/(ρ+α), while he gap beween µ and h/(ρ + α) inreae a he rae ρ + α iff µ h/(ρ + α). Le u deermine now he ondiion under whih he diry reoure ha o be exploied, and how ha under hee ondiion µ > h/(ρ + α). 2.3 Shadow o of arbon, ariy of he renewable reoure and ompeiivene of he nonrenewable one Aume ha from ome ime x onward he nonrenewable reoure i no more exploied, o ha onumpion i aified by he renewable one alone. Define ỹ a he oluion of u (y) = y. Then, from ime x on, he quaniy onumed i min {y,ỹ}. If ỹ y, he renewable reoure i abundan, γ y() =, he ariy ren i nil, γ y () =, and he FOC (2) i aified ogeher wih he omplemenary lakne ondiion (4) and (5). If ỹ > y, he renewable reoure i rare, γ y() = u (y ) y >, he ariy ren i poiive, γ y () =, and he FOC (2) and he omplemenariy lakne ondiion (4) and (5) are aified. We denoe by y he value of min {y,ỹ} and by p he orreponding gro marginal urplu : p = u (y). When he renewable reoure i abundan, p = y and no ren ha ever o be harged for i exploiaion, while when i i rare ome ren γ y() ha o be harged one p() i higher han y. In he former ae p() anno be higher han y, in he laer ae p() i a mo equal o p. Le W(X( x ),Z( x )) be he value funion from x onward: W(X( x ),Z( x )) = x {u(y) y y hz()} e ρ( x) d. I inlude wo omponen, he um of he diouned ne moneary urplu (gro urplu minu o) generaed by he onumpion of y, from whih mu be dedued he um of he diouned manageable damage generaed by he ok of polluion inheried from he pa, Z( x ), auming ha 6
9 Z( x ) Z. Beaue he polluing reoure i no more exploied, hen Ż() = αz() o ha Z() = Z( x )e α( x), < x. Hene: and W(X( x ),Z( x )) = 1 ρ (u(y) yy) dw(x( x ),Z( x )) dz( x ) = h ρ + α. h ρ + α Z( x), (12) Wha i noeworhy i ha he burden of he inheried arbon ok i a linear funion of he ok hank o boh he linear form of he manageable damage funion and he linear form of he arbon ok dynami. The hadow marginal o of he inheried ok in value a ime x and equal o h/(ρ + α), i independen of boh Z( x ) and x. Sine boh Z( x ) and x are arbirary, hi implie, by a raighforward reurive argumen, ha he marginal hadow o of he arbon ok Z() in urren value i alo onan and equal o h/(ρ + α). Aume now ha oal i never exploied. The only upply i he olar energy, and i onumpion i equal o y defined above. Le u examine under wha irumane uh a poliy would no be he opimal one Cae of an abundan olar energy Reall ha hi ae orrepond o y ỹ or equivalenly p = y. Conider ome ime inerval [, 1 ], wih 1 >. Over hi inerval, le u redue a eah dae he onumpion of he renewable reoure by ε, < ε y, and inreae he onumpion of he nonrenewable reoure by he ame amoun, o ha x() = ε and y() = y ε. 1 Aume ha ε and are uffiienly mall for he arbon onenraion o remain under he eiling. Sine oal onumpion i held onan a he level y, he balane hee of he ubiuion may be redued o wo omponen: a produion o aving reuling from he onumpion of a le oly reoure provided ha x < y ; 1 Exploiing he nonrenewable reoure wihou imulaneouly reduing he exploiaion rae of he renewable reoure would reul in a marginal gro urplu u (y +ε) lower han he marginal o of he renewable reoure y. Then i i eaily heked ha he FOC (2) relaive o he ue of hi reoure and he aoiaed omplemenary lakne ondiion (4) and (5) anno be imulaneouly aified. Thu if he non renewable i o be exploied he exploiaion rae of he renewable mu be redued. 7
10 an inreae in he burden of polluion reuling from he exploiaion of a dirier upply. The value funion a ime along he iniial pah i: W(X( ),Z( )) = {u(y) y y hz()} e ρ( ) d. Beaue he emiion of polluion i nil, Z() = Z( )e α( ), and he value funion i given by equaion (12), wih x =. The value funion a ime on he perurbed pah read: W ε (X( ),Z( )) = wih: 1 {u(y) x ε y (y ε) hz()} e ρ( ) d +e ρ( 1 ) ζε αz(), [, 1 ], Ż() = αz(), > 1, 1 {u(y) y y hz()} e ρ( 1) d, implying ha: ( Z( ) ζε ) e α( ), [, 1 ], α Z() = Z( 1 ) e α( 1), 1, where: Z( 1 ) = (13) ( Z( ) ζε ) e α( 1 ) + ζε α α. (14) Hene he following value funion for he perurbed pah: W ε (X( ),Z( )) = 1 ρ (u(y) yy) + ε ( y x h ζ ) (1 ) e ρ( 1 ) ρ α h ρ + α Z( ) + h ζε ( ) 1 e ρ( 1 ). ρ + α α The differene beween he value funion on he perurbed and he iniial pah amoun o: W ε (X( ),Z( )) W(X( ),Z( )) = ε [ ( y x ) ζh ] (1 ) e ρ. ρ ρ + α 8
11 I i rily poiive, whaever he value of he perurbaion ε and he lengh of he ime inerval, provided ha he eiling onrain i no reahed, if and only if: y x > ζh ρ + α, (15) whih imply mean ha he fir omponen of he balane hee of he perurbaion, he o aving omponen, i larger han he eond one, he addiional damage omponen. Thi ondiion i neeary and uffiien for he exploiaion of he nonrenewable reoure. In wha follow we aume ha i i aified. We onlude a follow. When he renewable reoure i abundan, ha i y ỹ, a neeary and uffiien ondiion of exploiaion of he diry nonrenewable reoure i ha i exploiaion o x i uffiienly lower han he exploiaion o of he lean renewable ubiue y, he o direpany being a lea equal o ζh/(ρ + α) Cae of a rare olar energy Reall ha hi ae orrepond o y < ỹ or equivalenly p > y. Exploiing he oal ok doe no imply any more o redue he produion of olar energy. Thu he value funion a ime on he perurbed pah read now: W ε (X( ),Z( )) = 1 {u(y + ε) x ε y y hz()} e ρ( ) d + e ρ( 1 ) {u(y) y y hz()} e ρ( ) d. where Z() i given by: e α < Z() = e [ α Z + ζε α (eα e α ) ] < 1 e [ α Z + ζε α (eα 1 e α ) ] 1. Hene ε an be hoen o ha Z() < Z,. For ε uffiienly mall: u(y + ε) u(y) + u (y)ε = u(y) + p ε, 9
12 o ha: W ε (X( ),Z( )) 1 ρ (u(y) yy) + ε ρ ( (p x ) h ζ ) (1 ) e ρ( 1 ) α h ρ + α Z( ) + h ρ + α ζε α ( 1 e ρ( 1 ) ). The differene beween he value funion on he perurbed pah and he iniial pah i now: W ε (X( ),Z( )) W(X( ),Z( )) ε [ (p x ) ζh ] (1 e ρ ). ρ ρ + α I i rily poiive provided ha: p x > ζh ρ + α. (16) We onlude ha i may happen ha i i opimal o exploi he diry nonrenewable reoure even if i average o i higher han he o of i lean renewable ubiue when he renewable reoure i rare. I will be he ae when he upply of he renewable y i uffiienly mall, ha i p i uffiienly larger han x, however low y i Marginal hadow o of he polluion ok along he opimal pah Noie ha ζh/(ρ + α) i he marginal damage aoiaed o any addiional ue of he nonrenewable reoure, however mall or large. A poined ou above, i i independen of he addiional ue of he nonrenewable reoure ε, of he lengh of ime inerval of addiional ue of he diry reoure and of he polluion ok Z(), provided ha i remain below he eiling. Hene wihou any eiling onrain, he arbon hadow o would be preiely equal o h/(ρ + α) a eah dae. Thu he arbon hadow o, when he eiling onrain i aouned for, mu be higher han h/(ρ + α) before he eiling and when a he eiling, and equal o h/(ρ+a) afer he eiling, when he remaining nonrenewable reoure ok i o low ha he eiling an never be reahed again. 2 Noe ha for p y ondiion (16) beome (15). 1
13 3 The renewable reoure i abundan We aume in hi eion ha he renewable reoure i abundan: y > ỹ, or equivalenly p = y, and ha ondiion (15) hold. Le u define x a he maximum flow of he polluing reoure onumpion when he arbon ok i a i eiling Z : x = αz/ζ. We denoe by p he orreponding gro marginal urplu: p = u (x). Two ype of opimal pah may arie, aording o he value of y ompared o p. 3.1 Bu i i more expenive han he nonrenewable reoure a he eiling Thi ae, orreponding o y > p or equivalenly ỹ < x, i illuraed in Figure 1. y > p mean ha when a he eiling and he nonrenewable reoure i he only reoure whih i exploied hen he lean renewable ubiue i no ompeiive. Thu if here mu exi a phae a he eiling during whih he exploiaion of oal i blokaded a x, hi phae mu be a phae during whih only oal ha o be exploied. Thi i implying ha oal i exploied alone from he beginning of he opimal pah when he eiling i no ye hur, nex when a he eiling and laly afer he eiling when he oal exploiaion doe no emi enough new polluion for he eiling onrain o be effeive again. Finally when p() reahe y, he diry oal ok i exhaued and he lean olar energy i exploied alone. < Figure 1 here > The opimal pah ha four phae. During he fir phae [, ) he nonrenewable reoure i he only exploied one. The prie i equal o: p() = x + λ e ρ + ζµ() < p, (17) wih µ() given by (11) beaue he arbon onenraion i under he eiling Z. In (11) µ i greaer ha h/(ρ + α), o ha he ame hold for µ() ielf. During hi phae Z() inreae: p() < p implie ha x() > x and, ogeher wih Z() < Z, hi implie ha ζx() > αz(). Thi phae end a dae when imulaneouly Z( ) = Z and p( ) = p. The eond phae [, ) i he phae a he eiling, wih he nonrenewable reoure aifying he whole demand: p() = p and x() = x. A hi prie, 11
14 he renewable reoure i no ompeiive and anno relax he eiling onrain. During hi phae µ() i dereaing, and i beome preiely equal o h/(ρ + α) a he end of he phae. Beaue he eiling onrain i igh, he aoiaed Lagrange muliplier ν() i rily poiive and he dynami of µ() i given by (7). Beide, equaion (1) yield: µ() = 1 ζ ( p x λ e ρ). (18) Time differeniaing (18) and ubiuing for µ() given by (7) and for µ() given by (18) we obain: ν() = 1 ζ ( (ρ + α) (p x ) αλ e ρ ζh ). The hird phae [, x ) i again a phae during whih he nonrenewable reoure i he only one whih i exploied. The prie i now given by: p() = x + λ e ρ + ζh ρ + α. (19) Thu he prie i higher han p, hene x() dereae and he eiling onrain beome unbinding, o ha µ() = h/(ρ+α) a poined ou above 3. A he end of hi phae p() = y and he renewable reoure beome ompeiive and ake he whole marke. Hene he nonrenewable reoure mu be exhaued. The la phae [ x, ) i a phae of a definiively lean eonomy: p() = y and y() = ỹ. There are five endogenou variable o be deermined: λ, µ,, and x. They are given a he oluion of he following yem of five equaion: q d (p 1 ())d + ( ) x + x q d (p 3 ())d = X, (2) Z e α + ζq d (p 1 ())e α( ) d = Z, (21) 3 Noe ha x() < x, >, and Z( ) = Z implie ha Z() < Z, >. However, hi doe no imply ha Z() i monoially dereaing from onward. Bu we are ure ha Z() anno hi again he eiling Z. Hene µ() = h/(ρ+α),, o ha he prie pah, for >, i given by p 3 () defined in equaion (24) below. 12
15 p 1 ( ) = p, p 3 ( ) = p, p 3 ( x ) = y, (22) p 1 () and p 3 () being repeively given by: [ p 1 () = x + λ e ρ + ζ µ h ] e (ρ+α) + ζh ρ + α ρ + α, (23) p 3 () = x + λ e ρ + ζh ρ + α. (24) Equaion (2) i he umulaed demandupply balane equaion of he nonrenewable reoure. Equaion (21) ae he arbon ok oninuiy a. Equaion (22) ae he prie oninuiy repeively a, and x. I i eaily heked ha for any λ, µ,, and x oluion of hee five equaion here exi value of γ x (), γ y(), γ y (y) and ν() uh ha all he opimaliy ondiion (1) (1) are aified by he above prie and quaniy pah. 3.2 And i i heaper han he nonrenewable reoure a he eiling Le u now examine he oher ae: y < p or equivalenly x < ỹ. Here, when he arbon ok i a he eiling and he exploiaion of he nonrenewable reoure i bounded by x, he demand anno be aified by hi ole reoure, beaue i would imply a prie p > y and he renewable reoure would be ompeiive. Thu he prie y i he maximum prie whih may prevail. The only poibiliy when a he eiling i ha he prie be equal o y and he demand equal o ỹ. The nonrenewable reoure being he le oly one, i mu be ued a muh a poible: x() = x and y() = ỹ x, an immediae impliaion of diouning. By le oly i mu be underood ha x + ζh/(ρ + α) < y, ha i ondiion (15) i aified. Noe ha we mu alo have x + λ e ρ + ζh/(ρ + α) y during hi phae a he eiling. The equaliy hold a he end of he phae, whih mean ha he ok of nonrenewable reoure mu hen be exhaued. Afer he end of he phae he prie ay a he ame level y. The opimal pah are illuraed in Figure 2. < Figure 2 here > 13
16 The fir phae [, ) i imilar o he fir phae of he preeding enario, p() = p 1 (), exep ha a he end of he phae, when he arbon ok reahe i eiling, he prie mu now be equal o y. The eond phae [, ) a he eiling i he phae we have previouly deribed: p() = y. Sine he nonrenewable reoure ok i exhaued a he end of hi phae, we have now = x.
