  • Showing the connection between thos problems which have been emerged durignt he discussion so far and this proposed measure: this can be the solution for the problems.
  • IRP report: III. Scenario: Metabolic rates of industrial and developing countries converge at around 6 tons per capita per year. This scenario requires far-reaching absolute resource use reductions in the industrialized countries, by a factor of 3 to 5. Countries classified as ‘developing’ in the year 2000 would have to achieve 10–20% reductions in their average metabolic rates. this scenario is consistent with the 2.2 tons of carbon per capita recommended by the IPCC as the convergence point that could prevent warming by more than 2 degrees centigrade. This report focuses on material resources, namely fossil fuels, minerals, metals and biomass. As such, it is not the intention of the IRP to cover all resources and issues in a single report. Rather, this report will be complemented by parallel reports of the IRP on land and soil, water, metals, cities and technologies to mitigate GHG emissions.more sustainable economy requires an absolute reduction in resource use at a global level non-renewable from external sources
  • Két fok alatt a klimavalt. ? – so altogether we will need huge amount of energy for replacement and for maintaning the current rate of energy consumption.
  • We always forget that outputs come from input, and we would like to tackle climate change through output side regulation, and forget to think the consequences of still increasin g fossil energy resource exploitation, if we increase the exploitation, how the output of it can dbe decreased? how much exactly has the fossil energy use increased ? However, thein order to avoid further environmental pressure form decreasign resource use, we propose that this measure should be used together with land use regulation in order to avoid to shift the pressure Kérdéseivel kapcsolatban az ÖKO ZRT hatástanulmányában talál magyarázatokat. A 194 és 161 PJ a megújulókkal kiváltott fosszilist, illetve a megtakarított fosszilis energiát jelenti. Vagyis az a kérdezett adat a megtakarítással kapcsolatban. A megtakarítás és kiváltás költségét fedezi a visszatérülő alap. Az induló pénz azért kisebb, mint a felfutó, mert eleinte nem annyira költséges a megtakarítás, másrészt irreális lenne egy nagyon magas induló tőke. Viszont, ha az alap folyamatosan töltődik fel, és a visszafizetések is folyamatosak az első évtől kezdve, akkor az alap növekszik. A tizedik év végén az alap önfenntartóvá válik, vagyis nem szükséges több befizetés az alapba, a korábbi "támogatások" visszafizetései fedezik az alap további működését.
  • Population : everyone gets the same year Interest groups get a quota amount based on the current consumption, which they will be distribute among themselves.
  • Why to exceed the cap: in generates extra income for the whole system. This provide an extra source for the Revolving Fund. There are funds for national RES and EE investments, but they are insignificant. Adn this extra money, woudl porvide additional support for it. In case we exceed tha elaready decreased cap of energy resource use, but have additional budget for realize this aim next year, which will be then easier. Big consumer will pay this extra money: therefore it is socially just
  • Service: house insulation, organic farming, organic hair dresser,
  • Social just, capable to decrease social differences, sicne at the moment poor people are not able to invest in energy savings, but thrgouh this scheme they can enter to the system through thier energy quota savings. Exceeding the national cap: oversonsumers are paying which amount is chaneled into this fund, so enables it to ensure more support for investments. 3 pros: Poor can participate Long term invesmtents Has more money comparign to the current funds
  • Nevironmental tax decrease the competitiveness, this system enable to invest, amelyre igény és szükség van a jelnlegi in reosurce scarcity and energy dependece

    1. 1. Quotas for energy resource use - An integrating set of tools to manageenvironmental, social and economic crises Veronika Kiss, CEEweb for Biodiversity European High-Level Conference on Rio+20: “Achieving Global Justice in the Green Economy” March 15th, Brussels
    2. 2. A growing world population meets thechallenge of limited natural resources. Howabout the future?
    3. 3. Problems to be solved: resource use• Overshoot – utilising resources above carrying capacity• Return to carrying capacity• Regulation of resource input to the economy
    4. 4. Challenges of resource use regulationChallenge Tackle the challengeHuman made structures (production Change structures toand consumption, infrastructure) a less resourcerequires energy to operate and intensive onemaintain.Natural resources are undervalued and Limit resources andthough unlimited. give them real priceGetting the maximum profit, investors Minimise negativeprivatise all benefits and shift external costsexternalities to the society.
    5. 5. Challenges of resource use regulationChallenge Tackle the challengeEconomic growth means Establish „free money” -benefit for a few people based stimulates economy and longon due the compound interest. term investments.550 ppm in 2050 requires Reduce the energy resource920 MW in RES and the use of economy activitiesreplacement requiresadditional enormous amountof energy
    6. 6. System level innovation requires systemic approach• Outputs comes from inputs.• Less input means less resource use, less use of land,and less emission.• We have to change production and consumptionpatterns through legal economic regulation incentives
    7. 7. Energy quota scheme•1st pillar: non-renewable energy quota•2nd pillar: green market•3rd pillar: revolving fund•4th pillar: advisory service
    8. 8. 1st pillar: non-renewable energy quota•To reduce non-renewable resource use year by yearuntil it reaches the carrying capactiy•A cap and share (trade) system of non-renewableenergy resources instead of GHG emissions•All users are grouped and each group receiveallowances (called energy quota) Different interest groups come up with proposal of quota amount and share it among themselves People get personal quotas from managing organisation
    9. 9. 1st pillar: non-renewable energy quota•Quotas cover all kind of energy demand (gas, electricity,fuel) Users trade with saved quotas, The saved quotas can be sold for a new type of money, called quota money.•If the absolute use of energy quotas exceeds the annualcap extra quotas can be bought at a high rate from themanaging organisation.
    10. 10. How is quota money born? Rest Sell Quota Balance money Quota of quotareceived and real Exchange consumption Need Buy Additional Quota
    11. 11. Quota money• its guarantee the national currency• has zero interest• its exchange to national currency has a high commission(e.g. 30%)•stimulates the economythrough the green market
    12. 12. 2nd pillar: Green Market• An internal green market is established forenvironmentally sound goods and services.• The market is open, run by market rules.• It sets sustainabilityrequirements andthus excludes certaingoods and services.
    13. 13. 3rd pillar: Revolving Fund• a financial instrument to ensure sufficient amount ofcredit  in quota money  financial security: paid back through the future energy savings or the generated profit of the investment  low speed return: speed of return depends on speed of saving• Credit covers all costs of investment and its 100% isreturned to the Fund.
    14. 14. 4th pillar: Advisory service• informs all stakeholders (citizens, industries, etc.)affected by the system• provides assistance and guidanceon how to change lifestylesand how to make right(investment) decisions
    15. 15. Strengths•Feasible apart from the globalised world•Step by step•Not just GHG but all dimension of environmentalproblems are concerned.•Stimulates economy,•Increases long term competitiveness,•Gives new direction to research and development,•Supports social justice.
