Emissions and targets of greenhouse gases not included in the Emission Trading System 2013-2020 / Verdonk, M. PBL , Jun 2011, 34 p. (Report No. 500253003).

The most recent proposal from the European Commission was evaluated to estimate the impact for the Netherlands. Also, an alternative approach was introduced and evaluated. Another issue in the discussions between Member States and the European Commission is that of whether or not ESD caps should be adjusted if monitoring methods and/or emission factors would be improved. For that purpose, this report evaluates how excluding monitoring improvements would affect the uncertainty range for forecasted non- ETS emissions for 2020 in the Netherlands…
