Costs and economic impacts of decarbonization in the long term. 2021 – 2030

Public Administrations are beginning to manage the risks and opportunities arising from climate phenomena, in parallel with the execution of actions to reduce GHG emissions. Therefore, coping with climate change inescapably requires planning, both because of the complexity of the emission sources, and because of the horizontality of the expected impacts.

Since the beginning of 2018, and in line with international commitments, the Foral Community of Navarra has had the Climate Change Roadmap 2017-2030-2050 (HCCN-KLINA) and the Navarra Energy Plan 2030. To complement them, a new regulation was approved recently: the Foral Law on Climate Change and Energy Transition.

Metroeconomica was in charge of conducting a double task. Firstly, to estimate the long-term decarbonisation costs of Navarra under different scenarios. This means quantifying the level of investment necessary to implement the measures included in the Energy Plan for Navarra 2030. Secondly, estimating the long-term socioeconomic impact of decarbonisation investments on production, employment, and income in Navarra, through the use of Input-Output Tables.
