Evaluating the impact of Klimatklivet: Current evidence and future design

Senast ändrad: 06 maj 2021

This research project focuses on the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency’s climate investment support programme (Klimatklivet). Klimatklivet provides financial aid to Swedish businesses and other organizations investing in projects that mitigate their Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. Klimatklivet is one of Sweden's major policies targeting GHG emissions and has contributed a total of 5.4 billion SEK to more than 3200 different projects.

The overall objective of this project is to improve our understanding of the impacts of Klimatklivet on participants’ investment decisions, energy use, emissions and economic performance using data on ex-post observed outcomes. The project will estimate the causal effects of Klimatklivet using the latest econometric techniques. The project will also provide advice on how to improve the design of the programme in order to make future evaluations of the programme more effective.
