Abstract:Energy and environmental economics are closely related fields as nearly all forms of energy production generate pollution and thus nearly all forms of environmental policy affect energy production and consumption. The three essays in this dissertation are related by their common themes of energy and environmental economics, but they differ in their methodologies. The first chapter is an empirical exercise that looks that the relationship between electricity price deregulation and maintenance outages at nuclear power plants. The second chapter is an applied theory paper that investigates environmental regulation in a multiple pollutants setting. The third chapter develops a new methodology regarding the construction of analytical general equilibrium models that can be used to study topics in energy and environmental economics.
