Considering the case of the Swedish–Norwegian electricity certificate market, the main findings include: (i) price expectations are not formed easily, and hence, investment decisions must be made under considerable uncertainty; (ii) under the current market structure, prices are expected to start at today's level, while decreasing steadily towards zero when approaching the planned end of the...
