Developments in Emission Trading

Agenda
• Concernment of the plants
• Application area of the TEHG (German law for emisson trading)
• Completed legal frame conditions
• Allocation of free emission certificates
• Monitoring
• Compensation of indirect effects
• Post Durban

This chapter considers activities according to annex I TEHG
-> Material specific waste treatment itself is not considered,
-> but generally plants with incineration processes
-> although no application for waste incinerators
 
- Plants that need permission according to number 8.1 or 8.2 of the annex of the 4th BImSchV (Federal Immission Control Ordinance) and apply hazardous waste or municipal solid waste
 
- Opinion of the German emission trade authority (DEHSt):
-> Main purpose of the plant must be waste incineration
-> If the main purpose of the plant is energy production, TEHG will be applied

Making Sense of Carbon Market Development in China
© Lexxion Verlagsgesellschaft mbH (9/2013)
China has recently begun promoting market-oriented policy instruments to reduce carbon emissions as part of its domestic climate strategy. A centerpiece of this new policy approach has been the launch of pilot carbon markets in seven distinct regions. Based on extensive field visits to all pilot markets under development, this analysis assesses the implications of this “bottom-up” approach to carbon market development for the prospects for nationwide carbon trading in China. It concludes that initiating carbon trading in the seven regions across China with insufficient capacity building, an extremely compressed time frame, and little bureaucratic coordination has engendered challenges for the development of a national carbon market. Nevertheless, these pilots have advanced the prospects for sustained climate action in China at the local Level through their contribution to indigenous technical and human capacity as well as through engaging new stakeholders, including domestic and international actors, supportive of the development of an eventual national trading scheme.

Emissions Trading in the US: Work in Progress on the Federal Level?
© Lexxion Verlagsgesellschaft mbH (9/2013)
Emission trading has been used as a policy instrument for certain non-greenhouse gases in the United States on the federal administrative level for years. Yet, discussions on the use of market based instruments to regulate greenhouse gas emissions on the federal level have not resulted in national policies. Following new commitments in a Climate Action Plan (CAP), the Obama Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) could be about to put a differentiated regulatory framework in place.

To Tax or Trade (or Both or Neither)? - The Confusing South African Status Quo on Carbon Taxation and Emissions Trading
© Lexxion Verlagsgesellschaft mbH (12/2012)
South Africa has a rapidly evolving climate change policy environment, which is in keeping with the country’s view of itself as a developing country leader in the climate change arena. Part of the policy environment includes attention to financial mechanisms that can be marshaled in support of the response to climate change. Flowing from the notion of using financial mechanisms in this manner, the South African National Treasury has taken initial steps towards the implementation of carbon taxation over emissions trading. While Treasury’s progress towards carbon taxation is in keeping with its primary role in financial matters, a dichotomy exists between Treasury’s view on how revenue raised from carbon taxation should be applied and the view of the Department of Environmental Affairs (which is the custodian of the national climate change policy). This article explores these and related issues with the purpose of giving a flavour and the status quo of the debate around carbon taxation and emissions trading in South Africa.

Building Capacity for Emissions Trading: The ICAP Training Courses for Emerging Economies and Developing Countries
© Lexxion Verlagsgesellschaft mbH (12/2012)
Several contributions to this issue of the Carbon & Climate Law Review have illustrated current efforts to introduce emissions trading systems in the developing world. Overall, this is a welcome trend, as it shows that carbon markets are successfully incentivizing more robust mitigation efforts in countries with the fastest growth in greenhouse gas emissions. Given that any meaningful action on climate change will necessitate allocation of scarce resources among many competing aims, the flexibility and efficiency gains offered by a marketbased approach may indeed be critical for any prospect of avoiding dangerous anthropogenic interference with the global climate system. It is thus readily apparent that ensuring the integrity of these emissions trading systems will become vitally important far beyond the national boundaries of the countries that introduce them.

Beyond Déjà Vu: Opportunities for Policyv Learning from Emissions Trading in Developed Countries
© Lexxion Verlagsgesellschaft mbH (12/2012)
Under pressure to abate greenhouse gas emissions without burdening their economies, several countries around the world have introduced emissions trading systems as a centerpiece of their climate change mitigation strategies. Drawing on the experiences with emissions trading made in Europe, North America, and the Asia-Pacific region, this article shows that considerable diversity can be observed across systems, providing valuable opportunities for comparison and policy learning. Individually, and in comparison, existing trading systems offer lessons that can be applied to the design and implementation of new systems – especially in emerging economies where carbon markets are currently under development, such as China – and to the improvement of already operating systems. Such lessons are identified in three different categories: the role of the political process and economic context; system design; and system implementation and operation.
