Summary of seminar:
Westminster Energy, Environment & Transport Forum Keynote Seminar.
Full description of seminar:
With the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) now operational in 30 countries across the EU, this seminar will be a timely opportunity to assess the next steps for the policy as it enters its third phase.
Discussion will focus on the implications of the introduction in 2013 of a more ambitious EU-wide cap on emissions; and moves towards auctioning as the preferred means of allocation and reduced access to project credits from outside the EU. Delegates will consider the impact of the ETS’s expansion in its third phase into the petrochemicals, ammonia and aluminium industries, and to additional gases as well as the feasibility of EU ambitions to link up its own ETS with compatible systems around the world to form the backbone of a future global carbon market.
Further sessions will examine how the aviation industry has been dealing with the complexities of the ETS following its inclusion in 2012 as well as the economic implications following fierce criticism from the United States, India and China - and lessons that can be learnt should the EU decide to bring shipping under this scheme in the future.
Including keynote presentations from the European Commission and the Department of Energy and Climate Change, topics for discussion include:
- The progress to date of the EU ETS in capping carbon emissions;
- The implications of phase 3 of the EU ETS for the countries and energy industries involved and the possibility of creating a global carbon market;
- The practical and financial challenges for energy intensives industries, including aviation, as the EU ETS begins its third phase; and
- The UK’s long-term strategy in capping its carbon emissions.
