arbcombo -- ARB Workshop on Potential Adjustments Related to CHP in the Cap-and-Trade Program

Posted: 09 Apr 2013 16:46:13
The Air Resources Board (ARB) will hold a workshop on May 1, 2013
from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm to address potential adjustments
related to Universities, Combined Heat and Power ‘But For’
facilities, and holders of legacy contracts within the
Cap-and-Trade Regulation.  

ARB will present staff proposals to address issue areas
identified in the ARB Board Resolution from the September 2012
Board Meeting, Resolution 12-33
http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/capandtrade/res12-33.pdf.  The potential
regulatory changes that result from this workshop will be brought
to the Board for approval in the fall of 2013.  Other elements
identified in the resolution will be discussed in later
workshops.  This workshop will consider a proposed methodology to
allocate allowances to California universities that recognizes
early action to reduce GHG emissions through energy efficiency
and Combined Heat and Power (CHP); and a proposed methodology to
provide transition assistance to covered entities that have a
compliance obligation cost that cannot be reasonably recovered
due to a legacy contract.  Staff will also present a proposal to
exempt emissions from steam and waste heat generated by
facilities that would not have been covered entities ‘but for’
the choice to improve efficiency by installing CHP.

Workshop materials will be posted prior to the workshop on ARB’s
Cap-and-Trade Workshops and Meetings webpage:

The California Cap on Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Market-Based
Compliance Mechanisms Regulation went into effect on January 1,

In Resolution 12-33, 
http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/capandtrade/res12-33.pdf the Board
directed ARB staff to work with stakeholders and state agencies
to develop methodologies for allowance allocation to University
covered entities; to develop a regulatory methodology to exempt
‘but for’ CHP steam emissions from a compliance obligation; and
to develop a methodology that provides transition assistance to
covered entities that have a compliance obligation that cannot be
reasonably recovered due to a legacy contract.  At this technical
workshop, staff will discuss proposals, initiate stakeholder
participation, and solicit stakeholder input on these proposals.
