24, 2016 to continue the public process to develop potential 2016
amendments to the Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting
Regulation (MRR) and Cap-and-Trade Regulation (Regulation).

This workshop will include discussion on electricity sector GHG
emissions accounting for the AB 32 statewide target and
Cap-and-Trade Program compliance obligations and staff’s proposal
for post-2020 electrical distribution utility allowance
allocation.  In the first part of the workshop, staff will
describe why amendments to the regulations are being considered
to ensure full GHG emissions accounting for electricity
transactions in the California Independent System Operator’s
Energy Imbalance Market.  The second part of the workshop will
include a staff update on post-2020 allowance allocation for
electrical distribution utilities.

UPDATE: Also at the workshop, staff plans to discuss allocation
to legacy contract generators without industrial counterparties,
and to discuss the following emissions exemptions: geothermal
generating units and geothermal facilities, natural gas hydrogen
fuel cells, low bleed pneumatic devices, and the qualified export
adjustment for imported electricity.
