The assessment of environmental benefits of low-emission electricity generation, the case of Poland

Magdalena Ligus


The paper focuses on the valuation of environmental external benefits of low-emission electricity generation. The empirical research results of valuing benefits from improving air quality in Poland using contingent valuation method (CVM) and hedonic pricing method (HPM) are presented. The research is used to estimate the environmental benefits indicator of low-emission electricity generation, after the procedure proposed by the author. The result of the original research is confronted with the alternative research conducted in the CASES (Cost Assessment of Sustainable Energy Systems) Project of EC in 2008.
