The book does not include the damages from climate change in its total costs, yet provides an intriguing calculation. If one assumed marginal damages to be $30/ton of carbon dioxide, the external costs from climate change per kilowatt hour are also in the neighborhood of 3 cents—doubling the estimated external by: Regulators and policymakers often claim that regulations are intended to protect the poorest and most vulnerable consumers.

To this end, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) has undertaken an assessment of utility-sector energy efficiency program costs and cost effectiveness in   The definitions of relative energy prices and energy consumption.

The essence of relative energy prices is the relationship among prices. Taking the definition of relative energy prices at home and abroad (Wei and Lin ; Yang ) 4 as a reference, we consider the relative energy price as a comparison between energy prices and the general price level from the perspective of inflation by: 6.
