Carbon Capture and Storage Policy Indicator (CCS-PI): 2015 update
Carbon Capture and Storage Policy Indicator (CCS-PI): 2015 update

2nd September 2015

Organisation(s): Global CCS Institute

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Carbon markets, Domestic policy, Economics, Law and regulation, Policy, Use and storage (CCUS)

The Institute has developed an analytical framework to derive a composite indicator that compares levels of national policy support to drive domestic action on CCS.

This 2015 update of the CCS Policy Indicator includes some important developments that have occurred in several major countries since it was last published in 2013.

Position paper on benchmarking and allocation rules in phase III of the EU Emissions Trading System
Position paper on benchmarking and allocation rules in phase III of the EU Emissions Trading System

1st February 2010

Organisation(s): Climate Action Network Europe (CAN-Europe)

Topic(s): Carbon markets, Law and regulation, Policy

This position paper is part of the European NGOs’ contribution to the comitology procedure implementing the provisions of the reviewed EU Emissions Trading directive on benchmarking and EU-wide allocation rules. We expect a draft decision, prepared by EU national experts and the European Commission, to be presented to the Council and the European Parliament before the summer of 2010, with the aim of having a final decision before the end of 2010.

Carbon valuation in UK policy appraisal: a revised approach
Carbon valuation in UK policy appraisal: a revised approach

1st July 2009

Organisation(s): Department of Energy and Climate Change, UK Government

Topic(s): Carbon markets, Economics, Social cost

This paper sets out a revised approach to valuing carbon in policy appraisal, following a review undertaken within Government in the course of 2008 and early 2009. It concludes that the approach, based on estimates of the SCC, should be replaced with a target-consistent approach, based on estimates of the abatement costs that will need to be incurred to meet specific emissions reduction targets. The case for change is motivated by the considerable uncertainty that exists surrounding estimates of the SCC. The change will have the effect of helping to ensure that the policies the UK Government develops are consistent with the emissions reductions targets that the UK has adopted through carbon budgets and also at an EU and UN level.

Carbon dioxide capture and storage in the clean development mechanism: assessing market effects of inclusion
Carbon dioxide capture and storage in the clean development mechanism: assessing market effects of inclusion

13th November 2008

Organisation(s): IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEAGHG)

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Carbon markets, Law and regulation, Policy, Use and storage (CCUS)

The report presents findings associated with the possible inclusion of carbon dioxide capture and geological storage (CCS) within the Kyoto Protocol’s clean development mechanism (CDM), and the potential repercussions this could have on the global regulated carbon market. 

In order to achieve this, it examines the effects of creating additional certified emission reduction (CER) 'offsets' from CCS activities to the pool available for compliance by Annex B Parties to the Kyoto Protocol. The study also considers implications for 2020 in order to gauge potential market effects of CCS in any future, yet-to-be-agreed, post-2012 international carbon trading mechanism.
