arbcombo -- 2011 Cap-and-Trade Activities Schedule is Now Available Posted: 10 Feb 2011 08:52:44
The California Air Resources Board (ARB) posted a 2011 cap-and-trade activities schedule on the ARB website. This schedule provides an overview of the current plans for regulatory and implementation activities during 2011, including public workshops, planned discussion topics, and expected release of regulatory changes. To download a copy of the 2011 cap-and-trade rulemaking schedule, go to: http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/capandtrade/capandtrade.htm The cap-and-trade regulation will provide a fixed limit on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the sources responsible for about 85 percent of California’s total GHG emissions. Cap-and-trade will control GHGs from major emission sources (“covered entities”) by setting a firm limit (the “cap”) on GHG emissions while employing market mechanisms to cost-effectively achieve the emission reduction goals. The cap for GHG emissions from major sources would commence in 2012 and decline over time, achieving emissions reductions throughout the program’s duration. The cap-and-trade regulation supports the implementation of AB 32, the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006. Under AB 32, ARB has developed numerous measures supported by the regulation to reduce GHG emissions and help clean the air, protect the environment and drive innovative new solutions to clean energy.
