ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the provisional cap of 1.9 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent on emissions in 2013, which will be the first year of the European Union (EU) emissions trading scheme phase III. The provisional cap and auctioning rules are important part of phase III of the scheme, which is expected to run until 2020 and will include phasing out the free emissions allowances for several sectors. The final proposal is expected to be released in October 2010.
