Second Hubei Emissions Trading Scheme Workshop

11.5.13 - 11.6.13

Wuhan University and CCAP organized the second Hubei ETS workshop hosted by the Hubei Provincial Development and Reform Commission on November 5th and 6th in Wuhan, China.  The workshop convened more than 100 enterprises regulated under the ETS, with the participation of UK-FCO, GIZ, IFC/World Bank, and the NDRC’s National Center for Climate Change Strategy and International Cooperation (NCSC).

The workshop addressed key issues pertaining to a successful launch of the ETS and enterprise compliance.  Topics focused on monitoring, reporting, and verification (MRV), and on trading.  Additionally, Wuhan University and CCAP presented their joint research findings on the transition from a grandfathering approach to a benchmarking allowance allocation approach, as well as on the development of marginal abatement costs curves in the power and industrial sectors in Hubei.  Experts drew on experiences, challenges, and opportunities from the EU and UK ETS programs, and discussed how these lessons and experiences could be applied and improved for the provincial government and enterprises in Hubei, and as China develops its national ETS strategy.

CCAP co-hosted the first in a series of technical workshops in China this past July, bringing together enterprises regulated under the Hubei ETS and EU enterprise experts.
