2023-10-02 Housing cooperatives facing the energy transition. Insights from Poland and Czechia
authors:    /   /   /   /   /   /   / 
This study constitutes preliminary analytical material concerning the adaptative capacity of housing cooperatives to accommodate energy transition in Poland and Czechia. This report comprehensively utilises administrative data from Polish and Czech national registers for the first time. These data have been employed to (1) compare ...
2023-05-24 Distributional effects of carbon pricing in Poland
authors:    /   /   / 
The report aims to indicate the potential effects of climate policy and point out mechanisms to reduce inequalities caused by increased energy prices. Based on the macroeconomic model and microsimulation, we present the effects of carbon pricing and its consequences for economic sectors and households ...
2022-11-22 Mapping the indirect employment of hard coal mining: a case study of Upper Silesia, Poland
authors:    /   /   / 
It is insufficient to calculate the number of jobs in the mining industry to determine the labour market effects of a coal phase-out. This paper estimates the scale of mining-related and mining-dependent jobs in Europe’s largest hard coal mining region: Upper Silesia. In addition, we ...
2021-06-17 The coal phase-out and the labour market transition pathways: the case of Poland
authors:    /   /   /   / 
We study the labour market transition pathways driven by the coal phase-out in Poland between 1990 and 2050. First, we apply the concept of branching points to describe the transformation of coal mining in the context of three labour market trends: structural changes, demographically driven ...
2020-01-13 Short- and long-run dynamics of energy demand
authors:    /   / 
The timing of the response of CO2 emissions to a carbon tax depends crucially on the timing of response of energy demand of changes in energy prices. In this paper, we investigate the path of changing energy demand from the moment of a change in ...
2018-11-28 Risks associated with the decarbonisation of the Polish power sector
authors:    /   /   /   /   /   /   /   / 
The Polish power sector currently stands at a crossroads, facing two alternative pathways. First, the decarbonisation pathway with radical CO2 emissions reduction, which involves a fast phase-down of coal. Second, the baseline pathway that abandons emission reduction targets, and involves a slow coal phase-down. Both ...
2018-10-25 Managing coal sector transition under the ambitious emission reduction scenario in Poland. Focus on labour
authors:    /   /   /   /   / 
This report presents the main economic facts on the role of coal in the Polish economy, and analyses the implications of the transition away from coal for coal consumption and coal mining employment in Poland. Poland’s energy mix relies on coal, most of which is ...
2016-02-28 Input vs. output taxation – a DSGE approach to modelling resource decoupling
authors:    /   /   / 
Environmental taxes are a crucial instrument aimed at reducing resource use through lower production losses, resource-leaner products and more resource-efficient production processes. In this paper we focus on material use and apply a multisector DSGE model to study two types of taxation: tax on material ...
2010-10-27 Large scale, multi-sector DSGE model as a climate policy assessment tool
authors:    /   / 
We assess the macroeconomic impact on Polish economy of the diversified package of about 120 different GHG mitigation levers, which were identified in the bottom-up sectoral analysis. For this purpose, we constructed a large scale, multi-sector dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) model of Polish economy. ...
