Evaluation of the EU ETS Directive

Evaluation of the EU ETS Directive

Support for the review of the EU Emissions Trading System

Die Agenda zur "besseren Regulierung" der europäischen Kommission setzt voraus, dass Gesetzesinitiativen von Auswertungen relevanter existierender Gesetze begleitet werden. Diese Studie bewertet die existierende EU-Emissionshandelsrichtlinie, als Grundlage möglicher zukünftiger Veränderungen zum Emissionshandelsystem im Rahmen des europäischen Klima- und Energiepakets 2030. Sie verwendet einen Ansatz, in dem folgende Aspekte der Richtlinie systematisch ausgewertet werden: Relevanz, Effektivität, Effizienz, Kohärenz und EU-Mehrwert. Die Studie steht als Download zur Verfügung.
