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?

    Carbon pricing revenues: their role in financing the climate transition

    Last month, the Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, Simon Stiell, stressed how important this and next year are for the achievement of the Paris Agreement and called for “a quantum leap in climate finance” ahead of the Spring Meetings of the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund. Indeed, with emissions required to peak before 2025, our window of opportunity is rapidly closing to keep 1.5°C within reach. More and better finance is urgently needed. Carbon pricing policies and their revenues are part of the tools available that can help fill the climate finance gap.

    Maximising benefits of carbon pricing through carbon revenue use: A review of international experiences

    Carbon pricing policies and their revenues are part of the tools available that can help fill the climate finance gap. With raising revenues from carbon taxes and emission trading systems (ETSs) that have tripled since the Paris Agreement, and an upward trend that could continue in the medium-term, ‘how to use carbon revenues’ has become a crucial question. This report, prepared as an activity of the EU-funded European Union Climate Dialogues (EUCDs) project, aims to inform policymakers and practitioners on lessons learned and ways forward on the use of carbon revenues, with a comprehensive approach based on a review of international experiences.
