Linking Emissions Trading Schemes by Andreas Tuerk

By Andreas Tuerk

More and more GHG emissions buying and selling schemes are being carried out at nearby or nationwide degrees. despite the fact that, at the same time the variety of diverse schemes grows, few linkages exist among them. significant cap-and-trade proposals are presently at very important levels of their improvement, specially within the usa, Japan and Australia, a few of which explicitly emphasize the purpose of linking with different schemes. one of many strategic pursuits of eu weather coverage is linking the ecu ETS with different related schemes. The examine awarded during this quantity is on genuine fiscal, political and institutional constraints and implications. It examines the function of linking buying and selling schemes for the advance of the post-Kyoto weather structure and for expanding linkage among schemes. This crucial study can be suitable to either the medical group and for policymakers who're keen on the layout of rising buying and selling schemes and offset mechanisms, in addition to in designing the publish Kyoto weather regime. This quantity focuses in particular on: o fiscal, institutional/regulatory and felony dimensions of linking o Implications of linking at the layout of rising buying and selling schemes o The function of linking buying and selling schemes for the improvement of the post-Kyoto weather regime

For example, consider a system with a high priority on cost minimization and thus without restrictions on CDM-like credit imports, and with a price cap at some intermediate level. Another system, the prospective linking partner, puts a higher priority on substantial emission cuts and therefore has no price cap, and some quantity restriction on CDM credits. If the two systems engage in joined trading without further provisions, the newly established linked system – de facto – features a global price cap and an unrestricted inflow of CDM credits.

Credit imports may also be restricted for concerns over additionality (Schneider, 2007; Wara, 2007), which is not discussed further here. In fact, McKibbin et al. (2008) warn that economic losses due to imported carbon market volatility might erode its political support, possibly discrediting the entire approach. The current state of research does not allow for a definite conclusion on whether or not such features are needed for an optimal functioning of greenhouse gas cap-and-trade systems – a priori, however, it does not seem implausible.

7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. In this article, we only consider direct bi- and multilateral links between cap-and-trade systems with binding absolute targets. A bilateral link means that two emissions trading systems mutually accept their allowances for compliance (Haites and Mullins, 2001). We do not deal with voluntary schemes or systems based on intensity targets. Also, we assume that such links occur in absence of a government-level trading scheme such as the trading scheme set up under the Kyoto Protocol.
