The EU’s 2030 climate and energy framework: What’s in it for industrial sectors? Presentation by Tomas Wyns (IES) at the European Paper week 2014. How can the EU's climate policy (e.g. EU ETS) help industrial sectors innovate and become more competitive.

EU ETS: whats on the table (cap) Market Stability Reserve should increase pricestability and hence investor certainty (ongoing -uncertainty over starting date), Council supports ECproposal. (21% reduction in 2020 going up to) -43% in 2030,ref. 2005 for ETS sectors, through increased Linear Reduction Factor (1.74-2.2%)brings EU ETS more in line with long-term (2050)targets (-80 to -95%) 7. EU ETS: whats on the table (carbon leakage) Existing carbon leakage measures will not expire (as long asno comparable efforts undertaken in other major economies) Appropriate levels of support for sectors at risk of losing intlcompetitiveness Benchmarks to be periodically reviewed (tech. progress insectors) Direct and indirect carbon costs taken into account (but in linew state aid rules) Future allocation better aligned with changing productionlevels 8. EU ETS: supporting modernisation andindustrial innovation New Entrants Reserve 300 to be renewed andextended (NER 400) Scope extended to low-carbon innovation inindustrial sectors New reserve to address capital intensiveinvestments in low-income Member States (e.g.energy efficiency, energy sector infrastructure) 9. EU (ETS) 2030: some personal reflections (i) Annual allocation adjustment based on actualproduction will be difficult (could be a curse indisguise). Additional allowances should be linked (more)with (physical) investments Cross-sectoral correction seems to remain in placebut does LRF have to be 2.2% for industry andpower sector (e.g. 2% for industry and 2.4% forpower)? 10. EU (ETS) 2030: some personal reflections (ii) Ensure EU wide level playing field for carbonleakage protection (not the case now) Industrial demand side management notmentioned in Council conclusions NER for industrial low-carbon innovation: Finally!(see next slides) 11. Industrial policy and innovationNER 400 12. NER 400: Industrial low-carbon innovation Should focus on capital and risk intense (large scale)demonstration projects aiming towards commercialisation post2030 Create toolbox of risk-sharing instruments (grants, equityparticipation, loans, loan-guarantees, ) Facilitate upfront capital access through project milestones Industrial co-benefits should be acknowledged (e.g.productivity increase, resource efficiency, ) Encourage cross-sectoral/cross-company collaboration 13.
