Abstract: The Europeans Union’s (EU’s) climate and energy strategy aims at reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) by 20 % (compared to 1990) and to increase the share of renewable energy to 20 % by the year 2020. Increased use of bioenergy is considered key in these efforts. Moreover, the EU regards the Emission Trading System (ETS) to be the main policy instrument for reaching these objectives. This thesis investigates the effectiveness of these instruments for reaching climate policy objective... more
