EU Effort Sharing Flexibility Mechanisms: intra-Member State transactions and green investments

Side event @COP 24

In 2018 the EU has approved its Member State-level non-ETS targets until 2030. A key compliance mechanism for these targets is the trading of “annual emission allocations” (AEAs) between Member States. Although AEA trading is possible since 2012, very few transactions have happened so far. AEA trading is promising to become much more important in the 2020-2030 period, however.

The side event will discuss the implications of AEA transactions for Member States. A special focus will be placed on the ESRGIS project funded by EBRD which is developing guidelines for Member States that shall assist them in making trading decisions and thus foster the development of a functioning market.
