Peer Review of CE DEFLT and Öko-Institut: Study on ex-post investigation of cost pass-through in the EU ETS

The report provides a Peer review of the study “Ex-post Investigation of Cost Pass-Though in the EU ETS: an analysis of six sectors” produced by CE-Delft and Oeko Institut and published by the EU Commission in November 2015, which investigates carbon costs pass-through across iron and steel, refineries, cement, organic basic chemicals, fertilizer, and glass. The peer review, which has looked at relevant sections for refineries and organic basic chemicals, demonstrates why the results produced by CE DELFT for these two sectors cannot be used as direct policy recommendations.
