Grandfathering versus Dynamic Auctioning in the EU ETS 43 To examine the effects of the rule for the initial allocation of CO2 emission permits in the EU ETS, two treatments were implemented: one treatment with grandfathering as in the 2003/87/EC Directive, and another treatment with auctioning of all the available emission permits, following the recommendations in COM (2008). All language in the experimental instructions was context-free. Emission permits, environmental goals, or policy instruments for regulation were never mentioned.

35 Price Discovery in Emissions Permit Auctions  The value of a permit is the difference between the output price and the unit cost, divided by the required number of permits (5th column).  Permits are indistinguishable, so you will be using the ones you obtain on the capacity units with low costs (and high values) at the top of the table.  Remember that your earnings will be determined by differences between the values for permits used and what you pay for the permits. 50.  Bidding: You begin by indicating a bid for each permit you desire; you may bid different amounts for different permits or groups of permits.
