While ongoing legal challenges have delayed the timeline of the U.S. Clean Power Plan, regulators continue to wrestle with various compliance approaches and ways to adopt least-cost, low risk state implementation plans. Market-based compliance approaches, including the development of multi-state markets that enable carbon trading, are central to state efforts.
The good news is that there is significant experience to draw on from existing carbon markets in the U.S. and elsewhere.
Join RAP’s David Littell and David Farnsworth for a webinar on May 19 at 1 pm EDT that examines important lessons learned by environmental and energy regulators on how to set up and oversee carbon markets. Drawing from RAP’s primer, Carbon Markets 101: “How-to” Considerations for Regulatory Practitioners, this webinar will explore key themes and proven practices that regulators should keep in mind as they design and organize carbon markets.
