Abstract [en]

Design-build (DB) contracting can be used to promote innovation in the infrastructure sector. Alongside innovation, public clients often wish to encourage competition. At a first glance, these two ambitions could be conflicting. More risk on the contractors stemming from DB might not appeal to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), as they, ceteris paribus, have a risk disadvantage compared to larger firms. The research question is how more DB contracting will affect competition from a SME perspective. A simple model is provided to show how DBB stimulates competition and DB encourages innovation. Supported by semi-structured SME interviews from Sweden, it is discussed how the hybrid version of a controlled DB contract is inferior to alternative contract designs. The controlled DB contract does not stimulate competition nor provide incentives for innovation.

Sustainable tourist travel in cost-benefit analysis
Abstract [sv]

Tillväxtverkets statistik visar att turismen i Sverige ökar och därmed ökar också betydelsen för Sveriges totala ekonomi, export och sysselsättning. Samtidigt uppkommer miljöeffekter och andra effekter av turisternas resande. Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka möjligheterna att tillämpa samhällsekonomiska analyser i planeringen för att uppnå mera hållbara turistresor. Detta gör vi genom att undersöka om och hur effekter som relaterar till turism och turistresande kan analyseras med de metoder som rutinmässigt används för att ta fram beslutsunderlag för infrastrukturinvesteringar, det vill säga samlad effektbedömning (SEB) inklusive samhällsekonomisk analys (CBA, cost-benefit analysis). Möjligheter och hinder diskuteras och särskilt fokus riktas mot miljöaspekten av hållbarhet.

Studien har genomförts som en teoretisk analys av hur turist- och hållbarhetsperspektiven, med fokus på hållbara turistresor, tas upp respektive kan tas upp i en SEB. Fyra olika scenarier har analyserats: flytt av järnvägsstation i Kiruna, ny flygplats i Sälen, utökad länsbusstrafik i Åre och utökad tågtrafik och elbilpool i Vimmerby.

Abstract [en]

Statistics show that tourism in Sweden is increasing, thus increasing its importance for the overall economy, exports and employment. However, tourism is also associated with environmental and other effects, for example from tourist travel. This study investigated the possibility of using cost-benefit analysis (CBA) in planning to achieve more sustainable tourist travel. This was done by studying whether and how impacts related to tourism and tourist travel can be analysed using the methods routinely used in infrastructure investment planning, i.e. regulatory impact assessment (RIA) (samlad effektbedömning) including CBA. Opportunities and obstacles were evaluated, with particular attention to the environmental aspect of sustainability

The study was conducted as a theoretical analysis of how tourism and sustainability perspectives can be included in RIA. In addition, four different scenarios were analysed: relocation of the railway station in Kiruna, development of a new airport in Sälen, an extended county bus service in Åre and increased train traffic and an electric car pool in Vimmerby.

Abstract [en]

By comparing two representative countries, Sweden and Germany, we study the impacts of different road freight transport policies. Sweden applies a time-based infrastructure charge, and has done so since the 1990ies. Germany has introduced distance-based charges and subsidized the purchase of low emission trucks. We find that the German road freight policy has resulted in substantially larger revenues and a cleaner truck fleet and mileage. Some support is found for that the German policy causes spill overs to the neighbouring countries as hauliers tend to use the cleanest trucks in countries with distance-based tolls. By comparing the actual composition of trucks using the Swedish network to a hypothetical case where the composition is the same as on the German toll roads, we estimate the environmental costs to be around (sic)39 million less per year in the latter case. This puts pressure on countries as Sweden to implement stronger policies.

Abstract [en]

The cost of parking is in many cities subsidized and instead channelled through higher housing prices, wages, taxes, etc. The effects on other markets are principally well known, but the work on the area is limited. In this paper, we study how parking norms affect the size of the housing stock. Our analysis is based on a model of the rental, asset- and construction markets, the results are quality-assured by interviews with market actors. Prices and profits are affected when constructors are forced, through parking norms, to build more parking spaces than the customers demand. Parking norms reduce the housing stock by 1.2% and increase rents by 2.4% (SEK 300) in our example suburb.

Abstract [en]

This paper analyzes the way in which countries with international and local truck traffic decide to switch from a simple fuel tax system to a dual system of fuel and distance charge taxes. We show what drives a country to switch and how this affects the level of fuel taxes as well as incentives for other countries to also adopt the dual system. The model is partially able to explain the gradual extension of kilometer charging for trucks in Europe. The model also shows that, in the absence of diesel cars, the gradual introduction of kilometer charges will make fuel taxation for trucks virtually disappear and will lead to a system where truck use is (1) taxed mainly based on distance, (2) is taxed too heavily, and (3) where highest distance taxes are expected in transit countries with a strong market position. When the fuel tax must in addition serve as an externality tax for diesel cars, the introduction of distance charges for trucks will give rise to diesel taxes that are lower than the external cost of diesel cars. For trucks, this leads to a sum of diesel taxes and distance charges that are higher than the external cost of trucks.

Abstract [en]

The impact of policy instruments supposed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from road freight transports may seem smaller than expected. Using insights from economics and contract theory, the paper sorts out the (possible) instances of market failure in the freight transport market; operator market power, asymmetric information split incentives, and public goods. The primary limitations of standard policy instruments are demonstrated to be linked to unobservable information. Some of these may be reduced but not eliminated as information technologies develop, making it possible to observe, verify and provide contract-relevant information to the uninformed parties. There is little reason to believe that possible market failures present major limitations to the efficiency of economic instruments geared toward protecting the climate, other than possibly in the short run.

Land based freight transports, climate and policy : summary report
Abstract [sv]

I denna rapport diskuterar vi flera dimensioner av hur växthusgaserna från godstransportsektorn ska kunna minskas. Till exempel diskuterar vi införandet av så kallade Gröna korridorer och förslår verktyg för att lösa de komplexa koordinationsproblem som uppstår i dessa korridorer. Vidare diskuterar vi hur man ska se på de klimatpolitiska konsekvenserna av överflyttning från väg till järnväg eller elektrifierade fordon på väg. Vi visar att konsekvenserna av en sådan överflyttning beror på den energi- och klimatpolitiska kontexten. En stor del av rapporten fokuserar på hur godstransportsektorn kan tänkas svara på ekonomiska klimatstyrmedel. Godstransportmarknaden uppvisar en rad specifika egenskaper och förhållanden som skulle kunna innebära att den reagerar annorlunda än vad andra typer av marknader gör.

Abstract [en]

In this report, we discuss greenhouse gas emissions from freight transport and how they could be reduced. We address these questions from several different angles. For example, we discuss the introduction of so-called green corridors and propose tools to solve the complex coordination problems that are associated with these corridors. Furthermore, we discuss how to view the climate change impact from shifting road to rail or electrified vehicles on road. We show that the consequences of such a shift depend on the energy- and climate policy context. The major part of the report focuses on how the freight transport sector might respond to economic climate policy instruments. Freight market exhibits a number of specific characteristics that could imply that it reacts differently than other types of markets do.
