Abstract [sv]

Efterfrågan på biobränslen har ökat de 30 senaste åren och under samma tidsperiod har oljepriset stigit. I den här uppsatsen har vi undersökt i vilken utsträckning skatter på fossila bränslen har påverkat efterfrågan på biobränslen under tidsperioden 1970 till 2003. Vi har granskat de fem, i Sverige, mest frekvent förekommande fossila bränslena. En hög korrelation mellan höjda skatter och en ökad efterfrågan skulle leda till en större marknad för biobränslen och därmed göra Sverige mer attraktivt för utländska investerare inom denna bransch. Resultatet visar på trender som indikerar att höga skatter blir mer effektiva ju fler adekvata alternativ som finns tillgängliga. Dessvärre visar många av våra resultat ej signifikanta värden varpå inga säkra slutsatser kan dras.

Abstract [en]

The demand for biofuels has increased over the last 30 years and at the same time period the price of oil has risen. In this thesis we have investigated the impact that taxes on fossil fuels had on the demand for biofuels between 1970 and 2003. We have looked at five different fossil fuels; the chosen fuels are the most frequently used. A large impact would lead to an increase in the biofuel market in Sweden and therefore make Sweden a more attractive alternative for foreign investors. The result might indicate trends towards the conclusion that high taxes gets more effective the larger the biofuel market becomes, this since adequate substitutes for fossil fuels are required. Unfortunately, most of our results show insignificant results and therefore no strong conclusions can be drawn.
