In the Spotlight

The political debate on the extension of EU’s Emissions Trading System (ETS II) to road transport and buildings is heating up

While the ETS remains one of the EU's key instruments for reducing greenhouse gas emissions cost-effectively, the current energy crisis and the fear of increased energy poverty across Europe make it more difficult for some national capitals to support this legislation. The proposal is now entering the final negotiation round with national governments and EU institutions. Negotiators are currently trying to strike an acceptable compromise for all Member States. A final decision is expected to be reached before the end of December.
