A carbon tax recycled to a climate equity fund

The Dutch Socialist Party asked CE Delft to analyse the effects of a climate equity fund fed with revenues from a carbon tax for industry. This fund would be used to compensate households for any price rises associated with the energy transition in the built environment as well as for subsidies in this context. Impacts on the following issues were investigated:

  • household income
  • number of homes that can be made sustainable
  • feasible CO2 emission reductions.
