Tokyo Cap-and-Trade Program (2010-): Outline“The World’s First Urban Cap-and-Trade Program”Covered gas: energy related CO2 emissionsCoverage: 1300 facilities emitting large amount of CO2• Mainly buildings in the commercial sector• Covers 40% of missions from commercial & industrial sector in TokyoCap: 6% reductions for the 1st phase, 17% for the 2nd (two 5yr period)Compliance Obligation: Covered facilities are required 6 or 8% reductions over a 5 year period from their own base year emissionsAllowance allocation: Grand-fathering, for freeEmission Trading: Tradable allowances are limited to the excess reductions over compliance obligations MRV system has established for the programOffset system: renewables, emission reductions in small facilities, etc.
Excellent Results! 1. First year reports from covered facilities In total 13% reductions from the base year emissions 64% of facilities reduced more than their compliance obligations for a year 2. Responding Buildings Sector Vast investment in “Greening” buildings 3. Great help to overcome the power crisis after “Fukushima” Preparedness for the energy scarce situation
Urban Cap-and-Trade is an effective policy toolto reduce emissions from a demand side Cities’ alliance is the key to share knowledge and experiences in depth
