Low Carbon Development Partnership Summit to Highlight Emissions Trading Systems
Chinese government and international experts will gather in Zhuhai, Guandong Province, China this week to discuss best practices and methodologies for reducing the carbon intensity of China’s power generation sector.
With support from RAP, Chiara Di Mambra, from the European Commission Directorate-General for Climate Action, will join the group to discuss the European Union’s Emissions Trading System allocation rules. In particular, Di Mambra will highlight approaches to “benchmarking” allowance allocation to incentivize more energy-efficient production.
The Low Carbon Development Partnership Summit, hosted by the Energy Foundation, will take place August 23-25, 2012. Broader economy-wide carbon intensity reductions and developments in China’s emissions trading “pilots” will also be discussed.
