Yale Carbon Charge

The Yale Carbon Charge is testing the effectiveness and feasibility of carbon pricing on Yale’s campus.  The charge went into effect on July 1, 2017 and the first energy reports will go to administrators and building facilities staff in autumn 2017.

Using the university as a site for applied research, the project aims to inform energy policy, climate change mitigation, and environmental economics by implementing a revenue-neutral internal carbon charge while researching and sharing its challenges and benefits.
