EU-China ETS Project Quarterly Newsletter #2 - 中欧碳交易能力建设项目
Two days of training on cap setting and allocation related topics took place on 25-26 of April 2015 at China People’s Palace Hotel in Beijing. This was the last activity within the first annual work plan (AWP1)
This activity was designed in a practical and condensed way that helped a) to explain the design choices that are being taken at National/ Central level regarding cap setting and allocation to the various local stakeholders (with strong focus on local DRCs); b) to facilitate the setup of local DRC teams for the implementation of the cap setting and allocation tasks given to them by the NDRC; and c) to get a better understanding of the type of data needed to support the NDRC in the cap setting and allocation processes. There were presentations from pilot and non-pilots representatives. Mr. Johannes ENZMANN presented on behalf of DG CLIMA (EU ETS regulator) and Ms. Trine BERNTZEN presented on behalf of the Norwegian Environment Agency (Norway's competent authority for EU ETS). In the context of this activity an "ETS Trading simulation game" was also prepared by Environmental Defence Fund (EDF).
