The MIT Emissions Prediction and Policy Analysis (EPPA) model : revisions, sensitivities, and comparisons of results
TLDR
A DC-to-DC chopper circuit has a first switch that is selectively actuated to supply load current to a regulated bus and bus voltage to a resonating circuit which increases the applied voltage to approximately twice the value of the bus voltage, and a second switch selectively actuation so that the current on the bus flows through the resonatic circuit discharging the increased voltage stored therein to zero.

Tax Distortions and Global Climate Policy
We consider the efficiency implications of policies to reduce global carbon emissions in a world with pre-existing tax distortions. We first note that the weak double-dividend, the proposition thatExpand

Modeling the Transport Sector: The Role of Existing Fuel Taxes in Climate Policy
Existing fuel taxes play a major role in determining the welfare effects of exempting the transportation sector from measures to control greenhouse gases. To study this phenomenon we modify the MITExpand
