Title: An imputation of air pollution social cost of energy: A case study of Taiwan

Abstract

Based on the Air Pollution Control Act, the Environmental Protection Administration, Taiwan is scheduled to implement an anti-air-pollution fee on energy products in the coming July. The revenue of the anti-air-pollution fee will be used solely for air pollution control. The rationale of this fee is to endogenize the social cost of air pollution attributed to energy consumption and hence to curb the consumption of energy through price mechanism for a cleaner environment. Thus, to impute the social cost of air pollution caused by types of energy consumption is imminent for policy making. The objective of this paper is to propose a methodology to estimate the air pollution social cost of air pollution for types of energy in Taiwan. It is useful for policy making of the government in Taiwan and other countries as well. We employ data on epidemiology study and CVM study as well as energy consumption and pollution statistics to evaluate the social cost of air pollution for types of energy. This paper contains the following sections: (1) Introduction; (2) Methodology and Estimation Procedure; (3) Empirical Results; (4) Conclusions and Implications.
