"A GENERAL EQUILIBRIUM INVESTIGATION OF THE SOCIAL EFFICIENCY OF ENERGY POLICY INSTRUMENTS IN TURKEY"
by Yeldan, A. Erinc and Sevil Acar


Abstract
In this study we aim at providing an analytical quest for Turkey to study the true social costs
of the existing coal subsidization scheme and identifying viable alternative policy instruments and
economic measures to complement its e¤orts of further greening and de-carbonizing its economy. To
this end we develop an applied general equilibrium model and utilize both macro and micro level
data to assess the impact of the current arsenal of energy policy instruments (in particular coal
subsidies) and public policy intervention mechanisms to accelerate technology adoption and achieve
higher employment, energy security, and sustainable growth patterns.
Spanning over 2015-2030, our analytical apparatus focuses exclusively on considering the …scal
implications as well as the environmental repercussions of the CO2 and other gaseous emissions and
the relevant market instruments of abatement. With the aid of a set of alternative policy scenarios
against a “business as usual” path, we study the aggregate and sectorial performances of growth,
employment, investment and capital accumulation, consumption/welfare and trade balance.
