Title: Regional Carbon Markets in North America: Interim stop or final destination?


Speaker:  Brian Murray

Bio: Brian Murray, is currently the visiting Fulbright Scholar at the Institute of the Environment, University of Ottawa.  He is also director of the Environmental Economics Program at Duke University’s Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions and Research Professor of Environmental Economics at Duke’s Nicholas School of the Environment. Dr. Murray is widely recognized for his work on the economics of climate change policy. This includes the design of cap-and-trade policy elements to address cost containment and inclusion of offsets from traditionally uncapped sectors such as agriculture and forestry. Murray is among the original designers of the allowance price reserve approach for containing prices in carbon markets that was adopted by California and the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) cap-and-trade programs. Throughout his 21-year research career, he has produced many peer-reviewed publications on topics ranging from the design of market-based environmental policies and the effectiveness of renewable energy subsidies to the evaluation of programs to protect natural habitats such as forests, coastal and marine ecosystems.
