Climate Policy

FSR Climate aims to provide a reliable source for information, analysis, and evaluation of EU climate policies ex-post and a forum for discussion of research carried out in this area.

Our main research interests are the EU Emissions Trading System, the renewable energy promotion, the distributional impact of climate policy, energy efficiency policies and environmental and energy taxation.

Our events (workshops, conferences, online events, and others) and training courses (both residential and on-line) involve researchers and the policy and business communities for the purposes of developing and discussing research that evaluates EU climate policies.
