"Regional Energy/Envionmental Policy and Leakage Effect"
by Li, Shantong and Jianwu He

Recently, energy saving/emission reduction has been a very important issue for policy makers and researchers. As a very large country, China¡¯s regional policies play an important role in energy saving/emission reduction as well as national-wide policy. Many internatioanl studies have showed unilateral emission reduction policies may result in the ¡°carbon leakage¡±, i.e. emission sources migrate from abating countries to non-abating countries. Furthermore, some studies pointed out that the leakage is quantitatively significant. In the same way, China¡¯s regional energy/environmental policy may also bring on the ¡°emission/energy use leakage¡± effect among provinces. This paper will use China¡¯s multi-regional CGE model based on the most recent Input-Output Table to analyze the ¡°emission/energy use leakage¡± effect due to regional policy. Policy recommendation will be given based on the simulation results of environment policies¡¯ scenarios.
