Resumé

This article conducts a computable general equilibrium model to analyze the impact of energy price decline associated with a carbon tax policy in China. The findings show that the fossil energy price decline will significantly increase fossil energy demand and carbon emissions, while carbon tax can offset the impacts, which is an alternative policy to mitigate the carbon emissions. Since the carbon tax policy will lead to relatively small negative impacts on real GDP when fossil energy price is in decline, during which it is a good opportunity for China to introduce carbon tax policy.
