CERE's Runar Brännlund comments on the European development that has come in the wake of more and more renewable energy in the system: "That the Nordic electricity market will receive more elements of regulations isn't something Runar Brännlund believes. He however believes that the regulations performed by European countries to handle price variations in the wake of more renewable energy in the system will affect the price situation even in the Nordic countries. - We are not isolated, there will be a price equalization affect, he says. "
On the 18th-20th June, CERE celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the Ulvön Conference on Environmental Economics. Due to the special occasion and the consistent popularity of the conference, accommodation and places for the conference were filled up fast. The conference started back in 1993 when CERE's research director Bengt Kriström was at the Stockholm School of Economics and invited Paul Portney to speak at Ulvön.
Several members from CERE were there to present their research. One CERE member; Erik Brockwell, was awarded "Best Poster Award" for his presentation named "The Signaling Effect of Environmental and Health-Based Taxation Policy: An Empirical Analysis".
