Only in the steel and cement sectors does output reduction contribute to a significant carbon reduction. It is notable that the abatement curves predict similar levels of emissions reduction across all policy scenarios. There is an initial level of abatement that is achieved under low allowance prices, according to the abatement curve method. This is presumably because the curve contains a volume of abatement that has been deemed beneficial or costless to the company. e. abatement costs rise steeply after the initial, virtually costless, actions are exhausted.

3 As shown below, even assuming linear demand, it can be shown that significant pass-through occurs along with resulting profit-making from the EU ETS; adopting the isoelastic assumption would simply tend to make these effects even greater. Once the proportion of cost increase that is passed on to customers is known, the impact on profits from a decrease in margins can be established relatively easily. The magnitude of this effect is given by the sensitivity of demand to price, the ‘own-price elasticity of demand’.

They are all energy- and capital-intensive relative to the UK average. Energy is an important input into production, and the production plants tend to be large because of the associated economies of scale. Moreover, these f irms are often vertically integrated into companies that produce the raw materials for their production process, or consume or retail their product. In combination, these factors result in sectors comprising relatively few firms, and entry by new firms into the sector is relatively uncommon.
