arbcombo -- Notice of Public Availability of Cap-and-Trade and Mandatory Reporting Proposed Regulation Discussion Drafts and Workshop Posted: 07 Jul 2011 17:08:45
ARB staff is holding a public workshop to discuss draft changes to the proposed greenhouse gas cap-and-trade and mandatory greenhouse gas reporting regulations. DATE: Friday, July 15, 2011 TIME: 9 am to 3 pm LOCATION: Byron Sher Auditorium, 2nd Floor, Cal/EPA HQ Building, 1001 “I” Street, Sacramento Directions to Cal/EPA headquarters and public transit can be found at the California Environmental Protection Agency’s website at: http://www.calepa.ca.gov/EPAbldg/location.htm. WEBCAST: http://www.calepa.ca.gov/broadcast/?BDO=1 During the workshop, stakeholders may E-mail questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. In December 2010, the Board directed ARB staff to finalize a cap-and-trade regulation, and corresponding revisions to the mandatory GHG reporting regulation. The cap-and-trade program covers major sources of GHG emissions in the State such as refineries, power plants, industrial facilities, and transportation fuels. The proposed regulation includes an enforceable emissions cap that will decline over time. The State will distribute allowances, which are tradable permits, equal to the emissions allowed under the cap. Sources under the cap will need to surrender allowances and offsets equal to their emissions at the end of each compliance period. This workshop is meant to provide an opportunity for staff to explain how Board direction is being incorporated into the proposed regulations and for stakeholders to ask questions about the programs. All interested stakeholders are invited to attend. The discussion drafts are now available for download. These documents can be found on the cap-and-trade program website: http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/capandtrade/capandtrade.htm and the mandatory GHG reporting regulation website: http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/reporting/ghg-rep/ghg-rep.htm, respectively.
