Will New U.S. Carbon Regulations Impact Your Company?
(Download details here)
A mandatory Greenhouse Gas regime is likely coming to America sooner than thought as Corporate America and Wall Street, particularly electric utilities, are calling for regulatory certainty in investing in new plant and equipment. Companies such as Southern California Edison, AEP, Duke Energy, and Xcel Energy are out in front of the curve. A U.S. carbon regime is now a certainty. It's time to get the rules in place so industry can respond. The question is, are you ready and do you understand what impact this potential development will have on your corporation?

UtiliPoint International, C TRADE and Global Change Associates announce a new multi-client study to address these issues and to provide guidance to corporate America and particularly, electric utilities, on what the impact of a mandatory greenhouse gas regime will be. It will examine market opportunities, market sizing, regional and national markets, project finance opportunities and review how prepared the industry really is.

The Emissions Game - How Markets Can Help Save the Planet

Civic Exchange

Written by Christine Loh (CEO of Civic Exchange) and Roger Raufer (Director, Engineering Services of International Emissions Trading Group), the report explains how both traditional and emerging emissions trading systems work. It looks at the Kyoto Protocol's flexible mechanisms and other carbon markets, and discusses the prospects for post-Kyoto climate cooperation. Based on this international experience, the authors consider how emissions trading systems could be employed in China and Hong Kong to address the interlocking goals of air pollution control, energy efficiency, and reduction in carbon intensity.
