Klimaschutzverträge über einen CO2-Garantiefonds könnten zwei zentrale Hindernisse überwinden: Zu wenig Investitionen aufgrund von Preisunsicherheiten und zu hohe Förderkosten. Die Mobilisierung privaten Kapitals hilft zudem, die Schuldenbremse einzuhalten. Die Machbarbarkeitsstudie von Ewi und FiFo zum Download.
