Online course on the EU Emissions Trading System

11th June 2018 @ 9:00 pm – 13th July 2018 @ 5:00 pm Europe/Rome Timezone
Chiara Canestrini

The EU ETS is the cornerstone of the EU’s climate policy as well as still today the largest emissions trading scheme in the world. Launched in 2005, the EU ETS regulates greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from more than 11,000 heavy energy-using and power generating installations and airlines, covering about 45% of the EU’s total GHG emissions. 31 countries participate in the scheme: the 28 EU Member States plus Lichtenstein, Norway and Iceland.

This 5-week online course will include video lectures, readings, as well as interactive online activities. A one-hour live class will take place each week on Fridays, aimed at discussing issues related to the module of the week and enabling interaction between the participants and the instructors. 

The course is free of charge. Though it can be of use to any EU ETS stakeholder, this online training course aims to provide policy makers in the first place with a comprehensive analysis of the functioning of the European carbon market and of its performance.
