Abstract

This dissertation consists of four chapters on the intersection between macroeconomics and environmental economics. The first chapter studies how climate change mitigation policies affect economic growth in the presence of directed technical change and heterogeneous and complementary energy demands. The second chapter analyses the role of firms’ market power in determining carbon leakage when countries carry out unilateral climate policies in a globalized world. The third chapter investigates the determinants of aggregate productivity growth in Europe, providing new evidence on the effectiveness of structural reforms. The fourth chapter is an empirical analysis of the interaction between electricity self-generation and energy efficiency using Indian manufacturing data.
