Purpose of Workshop:
The May 18, 2016, workshop will continue the public process to
develop potential 2016 amendments to the Cap-and-Trade Regulation
(Regulation).  This workshop will include discussion on
re-evaluating and modifying a component of the methodology for
leakage prevention and allowance allocation to the industrial
sector.  Modifications to allowance allocation would be
implemented in the third compliance period starting with the
allocation of vintage 2018 allowances that occurs in fall 2017.

In 2011 and 2012, the Board directed staff to investigate
potential improvements to Program metrics for determining
emissions leakage risk in industrial sectors (see Board
Resolutions 11-32 and 12-33).  The Program commissioned three
studies to inform this sector-by-sector assessment in 2012, and
the studies were completed in May 2016.

The first two studies led by the University of California,
Berkeley, and Resources for the Future measured international and
domestic leakage, respectively, for most industrial sectors that
are directly regulated under the Program.  The third study, led
by researchers at California Polytechnic State University, San
Luis Obispo, measured leakage potential in select food processing
industries. At the May 18 workshop, researchers will present
their study results and answer stakeholder questions. Informed by
these studies, staff will propose a revised emissions leakage
risk evaluation methodology and will update assistance factors
for industrial sectors.

Copies of the research papers will be made available at noon (12
pm) Pacific time on Wednesday, May 11, 2016.  Other workshop
materials, including ARB staff’s presentation, will be made
available on Tuesday, May 17, at 9 am.  All materials will be
posted 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 sierrarm@calepa.ca.gov.
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, June 10,

Cap-and-Trade Regulation:
The Board first formally adopted the Regulation in October 2011,
and subsequently approved limited amendments to the Regulation in
June 2012, October 2013, April 2014, September 2014, and most
recently June 2015.  The upcoming 2016 amendments will seek to
improve Program efficiency, update the Regulation using the
latest information, and chart post-2020 implementation of the
