Sectoral expansion of the EU ETS – inclusion of road transport and heating

Share this article



As the lead consultant, GreenStream analysed the possibilities for an external expansion of the EU ETS in two separate assignments, for the Nordic Council of Ministers and for the Finnish Federation of Energy Industries.

Two sectors of special interest were identified in the analysis, road transport and heating. The analysis was carried out in terms of an assessment of the possibilities for including remaining emissions from these two sectors within the scope of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS).  The two sectors face the same challenge of a very large number of small emitters. Including these on the same terms and requirements as current large point emitters is not feasible.
