    Energy Transitions Commission: Immediate action is needed to halve carbon emissions by 2040

    Today, the Energy Transitions Commission releases their extensive 'Better Energy, Greater Prosperity' report, concluding that it is possible to meet the Paris objective of limiting global warming to well below 2°C. To succeed, it is key to accelerate electrification coupled with the decarbonisation of power generation via stronger public policies and investments.

    Copenhagen Economics has contributed to the report with analyses on the impacts on fossil fueluse and their markets, the role of carbon capture and sequestration, and the potential impact of four transition strategies in terms of carbon dioxide emissions.

    New study: Data centres have the potential to generate EUR 2.3 bn and 33,000 jobs in Finland by 2025

    Finland reaps large economic opportunities from data centre investments. We demonstrate that Finland’s data centre industry has the potential to grow from its current situation of supporting 11,200 jobs and contributing EUR 800 million to the GDP, to 33,000 jobs and EUR 2.3 billion by 2025.

    The report further examines the ripple effects of having a vibrant data centre industry in Finland. These ripple effects ultimately make Finland more attractive to foreign investment and support the development of Finnish enterprise – all of which leads to a significant economic contribution to Finland.

    The report was commissioned by Google and developed in close cooperation with the Finnish Prime Minister’s Office and the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment.

    Dr Bruno Basalisco and Dr Emmi Martikainen presented the study in Helsinki on 20th April 2017 at an event hosted by the Finnish Government – sharing the stage with State Secretary Paula Lehtomäki (PMO) and Head of Division Eeva Vahtera (Ministry of Economic affairs and Employment, Enterprise and Innovation Department).

    New study: The uptrend on the Swedish housing market is caused by fundamental factors

    The surge in Swedish housing prices since 2009 is largely driven by fundamental factors, such as expansionary monetary policy and ease of tax policies. Thus, the key to ease pressure on prices is to aim policy measures at these fundamental factors.

    In contrast, so-called macroprudential measures – as for example restricting households in their lending – are ineffective in curbing housing prices, and, in addition, will lead to a rigid credit assessment procedure, implying a welfare loss. If there are concerns about the robustness of Swedish banks, we suggest meeting these challenges by designing a stress-testing framework that more adequately reflects current risks.

    These some of the main conclusions from a new study on the role of macroprudential policy in Sweden.

    The study builds on a previous report on financial regulation in Sweden, where we were asked to analyse the effects of higher capital requirements. In terms of benefits, we found that the Swedish banking sector is already so robust that it would do little to reduce the risk of a new financial crisis. In terms of costs, we found that it could cause a significant reduction in Swedish GDP.
