How much can poverty be reduced through carbon tax revenue?
The ERC invite you to a seminar at which Prof Winkler will share some recent work, analyzing how much energy poverty can be reduced by spending carbon tax revenues in South Africa. The seminar is based on a think-piece, supported by a simple spreadsheet model, assuming carbon tax rates from Treasury and looking at four large programmes to reduce energy poverty: electrification, LPG, sustainable housing and rooftop solar.
