China Researchers Outline National ETS Allocation Plans for Power Sector

01 November 2016 – The NCSC has drawn up two draft allocation plans for the power sector – one based on historical emission levels and one based on an industry benchmark. Both plans would cover 1.3 billion tons of annual coal consumption, just below a third of China’s total coal use. Neither plan is an official proposal but they give an indication on what the ETS design team is thinking in regards to allocation.
