The Impacts and Costs of Climate Change
Summary of Ancillary Effects
From the review, we conclude that the air quality benefits of GHG mitigation may amount to a
substantial benefit. It is also likely that many low carbon technologies will have ancillary benefits
from reducing dependence on imports and increasing energy security. This is due to the likely
increase in renewables, nuclear generation, coal generation with sequestration, as well as
improvements in energy efficiency. The effects of policies on employment, trade and competitiveness
remain the subject of much debate. These issues will be examined later in the study through the use of
the GEM-E3 model.
Ancillary effects are important, and should be factored into the analysis of future climate change
policies. However, to assess these impacts properly, the ancillary effects need to be assessed and
reported separately, as they will vary with the exact policies and measures implemented.
