Allowance Value in a Greenhouse Gas Cap-and-Trade System: How Should it be Used?
September 1, 2009
The Pew Center on Global Climate Change held a briefing on the use of allowance value in a greenhouse gas (GHG) cap-and-trade system.

The panelists presented different views on how that value should be used, and the key mechanisms for distributing it.
