A window of opportunity to reform the EU ETS is currently open but closing soon: the EU ETS directive is currently being revised for its Phase IV (2021-2030), and trilogue negotiations between EU institutions, started in April 2017, will probably succeed in the fall.

I4CEEnerdata and IFPEN demonstrate in their report that the reform proposals from the EU Parliament and the EU Council are not sufficient to make the EU ETS a driver of decarbonisation in industry and energy sectors over its Phase IV (2021-2030).

The report analyzes greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions, the cost of necessary abatements, the functioning of the Market Stability Reserve and the framework of free allocation to industries. The report also examines the impacts of an exit of the UK from the EU ETS, as well as the possible introduction of a price corridor on the EU ETS.


16h30      Is the EU ETS reform sufficient to drive decarbonation in industry and energy sectors over its Phase IV?

    European Carbon Certification: the unlikely alliance

    The future European carbon certification framework is under intense debate. The first meeting of the expert group in charge of supporting the Commission has raised criticisms on the composition and mandate of this group, and the discussions have taken an unexpected turn by achieving the feat of bringing NGOs and CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) industrialists to an agreement against natural carbon sinks, those of our forests or our agricultural soils. Where does this unlikely alliance come from?

    Net Zero Industry Act: Europe in the race for cleantech

    The European Union still has a lot of work to do. Yesterday the European Commission published its Net Zero Industry Act, a piece of its response to the American Inflation Reduction Act, a necessary but still insufficient building block to keep the European Union in global cleantech race. It will also have to complete a number of directives and regulations to deliver its Green Deal. The EU election in 2024 is fast approaching, time is of the essence.
