|Second chance to exclude small installations from the EU ETS|
|Monday, 08 February 2016 05:30|
8 countries only (DE, ES, FR, HR, IS, IT, SI, UK) use the possibility to exclude small installations and hospitals from the EU ETS in in third trading period (2013-2020).
This may appear surprising, given heavy criticism sometimes targeted on multiple EU ETS bureaucratic requirements.
The draft Directive, however, gives those absent the second chance to revise their carbon politics and, consequently, to update lists of excluded installations or, even - for Member States currently not making use of this option - to do so at the beginning of each trading period.
Hence, the implementation of new politics in this regard can start as from 2021.
