Ernst Kuneman
Consultant

Ernst Kuneman is a Consultant at adelphi working in the field of carbon pricing and energy markets. He also works as project manager at the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP), a global network for governments to exchange experience and expertise on implementing emissions trading systems. Ernst specialises in ETS design and the role of carbon pricing instruments in relation to energy policy and market regulations. He is mainly concerned with cost effective transition packages and the evolving role of carbon pricing therein, and he has a keen interest in market incentives that support potential breakthrough technologies in reaching market maturity.

“Reaching net-zero cost effectively requires predictable and rising carbon prices that are embedded in markets and aligned with the broader policy framework. At adelphi, I get to advance these issues while supporting a broad range of stakeholders in navigating the transition.”
