Second Phase National Allocation Plans of the EU ETS – A Comparative Analysis

Download the Excel file with Tables

Recent Updates of Tables

Combining efforts of an international team of experts, the available Second Phase National Allocation Plans are evaluated against detailed criteria.

Our objective is to facilitate easy evaluation and comparison of Second Phase NAPs. The information and data are extracted from official sources and documents, and presented in the tables below.

The scope of analysis also includes calculations of the volume of allowances allocated to a standard sample power plant (existing and new entrant) under each Second Phase NAPs.

DISCLAIMER: The tables in this file are the result of an ongoing joint effort of an international group of researchers and experts. Whilst caution has been taken on the accuracy of information contained inside tables, it should be emphasised that this is a work in progress.

CITATION: The working paper “Comparison of National Allocation Plans for the Period 2008-2012” by Neuhoff et al. contains much of the core analysis and policy implications arising from this comparative exercise.

Likely NAP IIs – analysis following CEC decisions on Wed Nov 29th
The EU Commission announced on Wed 29th Nov, decisions on ten second phase NAPs submitted by Member States. In the table presented in the Excel File) we apply the methodology of the commission,  as presented in their decision on the first 10 NAPs, to all member states. If the same methodology is be applied across all Member States, then this would result in a 200 Mt/year reduction.
