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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Background 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.
