Emissions Trading and Industrial Transformation
11 November, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM (CET)
Which role can an ETS play in assisting the transformation to a decarbonised economy, including heavy industry? Will a carbon price be sufficient to deliver the breakthrough innovations to stimulate emergence of a market in ultra low-carbon industrial products, and to trigger the necessary investments – and disinvestments – from fossil-based to decarbonised value chains? If not, which other measures can complement and flank the ETS, such as a carbon border adjustment mechanism, consumption charges, or carbon contracts for difference?
