Posted: 16 Mar 2016 17:02:08
Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) staff invites you to
participate in a public workshop on March 29, 2016, to discuss
potential amendments to the Cap-and-Trade Regulation related to
establishing post-2020 emissions caps and allowance allocation.
Tuesday, March 29, 2016 10:00 am Ė 4:00 pm
Byron Sher Auditorium
CalEPA Headquarters Building
1001 I Street Sacramento, California 95814
Webcast: http://www.calepa.ca.gov/Broadcast/

Purpose of Workshop
The March 29, 2016, workshop will continue the public process to
develop potential 2016 amendments to the Cap-and-Trade Regulation
(Regulation). ARB staff will present options for establishing
post-2020 caps on emissions within the Cap-and-Trade Regulation,
as well as a proposal for post-2020 allowance allocation. 
Allowance allocation types to be discussed include industrial,
electrical distribution utility, natural gas supplier, water,
legacy contract, and university and public service facility
allocation. Staff will also discuss the post-2020 Voluntary
Renewable Electricity program. In the context of industrial
allocation, staff will indicate sectors for which staff is
considering modification to product-based benchmarks for the
third compliance period to more accurately represent these
sectors. (Staff does not plan to go into details on each
potential change in the workshop, but is scheduling
sector-specific meetings to discuss details.)  Finally, staff
will discuss a proposal for changes to the Mandatory Greenhouse
Gas Reporting Regulation related to product-based benchmarks in
the industrial sector.  Industrial sector emissions leakage
studies and assistance factors will not be discussed at this
workshop, but will be addressed at a later workshop.

Following the workshop, stakeholders will have an opportunity to
provide written comments during an informal comment period which
will conclude at 5:00 p.m. Pacific time on Friday, April 15,
2016. Comments may be submitted at
http://www.arb.ca.gov/lispub/comm/bclist.php.  Presentation
slides for this workshop will be posted at 9:00 am on March 28,
2016, at
http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/capandtrade/meetings/meetings.htm.  All
interested stakeholders are invited to attend.  A live webcast of
the workshop will be available at
http://www.calepa.ca.gov/Broadcast/.  Remote participants may
e-mail questions during the workshop to

ARB first formally adopted the Regulation in October 2011.  The
Board has subsequently approved limited amendments to the
Regulation in June 2012, April 2014, September 2014, and most
recently June 2015.  ARB staff is developing staff proposals for
2016 amendments that will seek to improve Program efficiency and
chart post-2020 implementation of the Program.
