According to the KASHUE, methodology for allocation of allowances applied in the draft, is analogous to that of 1 July 2008.


The European Commission upheld thus its decision relating to Polish CO2 allocations – despite the court defeat. But taking into consideration the findings of Court of First Instance in he judgment of 23 September 2009 in Case T‑183/07 there is still theoretically possible the opposite move – the increase in amount of allocations.
