Abstract

As CO{sub 2} emission is recognized as the one of the major causes of the global worming, international CO{sub 2} emission regulation has been of great concern and has been discussed actively on the global level. Several means of CO{sub 2} emission regulation have been raised and have received much attention recently. CO{sub 2} emission regulation is expected to affect the national economy as well as the national energy policy. Since the electricity sector closely interacts with CO{sub 2} emission, environmental regulation has the possibility of implementation in this sector. Considering the enormous role played by electricity in the national economy, it is very important to study the effect of environmental regulation on the electricity sector. The main purpose of this study is to estimate the marginal cost of CO{sub 2} emission by analyzing the effect of CO{sub 2} emission regulation on the electricity sector in terms of capacity and generation mix. This information can be used effectively in energy policy establishment. In addition, the effect of CO{sub 2} emission regulation on economic viability of electricity generating type is also being studied in order to contribute to the establishment of Electric System Expansion Planning in Korea.
