About Taran Fæhn

My main working fields include climate policies, innovation and growth, industrial policy, and interlinkages between trade, growth, and the environment. I have an applied policy approach and extensively use computable general equilibrium (CGE) models in my work. These include global and national models, dynamic models and models with induced technological change.

Many of the projects I am involved in address the impacts of climate and technology policy on the economy, energy use and emissions, with focus on the interaction between different policy objectives and instruments and on the transformation to a less petroleum-dependent and less emission-intensive economy.

At present I head the projects Prospects for Norwegian Petroleum Extraction and Implications for the Norwegian Economy as a Whole  http://www.forskningsradet.no/prognett-petrosam2/Research_projects/1253998473909  and SMART PATHS - Smart paths and costly detours towards a sustainable low-emission society https://www.forskningsradet.no/prosjektbanken/#/project/NFR/268200 , both funded by The Research Council of Norway. I also manage Statistics Norway’s contract with the Ministry of Finance on developing and updating the general equilibrium model SNoW (Statistics Norway's World model) for their own long-term projections and analyses.

Most of my research is performed within the Oslo Centre for Environmentally Friendly Energy (CREE), an Oslo-based research consortium established by the Research Council of Norway. I am also a member of the Oslo Institute for Research on the Impact of Science (OSIRIS) which analyzes effects of research and development.
