arbcombo -- ROOM CHANGE for Notice of May 18, 2016 public workshop on emissions leakage studies for Cap-and-Trade Program Posted: 11 May 2016 10:55:24
This workshop will be held in the Sierra Hearing Room in the CalEPA Headquarters Building, not the Byron Sher Auditorium. Date: Wednesday, May 18, 2016 Time: 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Place: Sierra Hearing Room CalEPA Headquarters Building 1001 I Street Sacramento, California 95814 Webcast: http://www.calepa.ca.gov/Broadcast/ Email questions during the workshop to: firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com. 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, 2016. A link to provide comment will be available after the workshop at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/capandtrade/meetings/meetings.htm Background 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 Program.
