In line with the National ETS Training Notice for the Power Sector on Allowance Allocation Trial Calculation and Administrative Management, issued by the Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) (环办培训函〔2019〕132号), eight sessions consisting of 17 training courses were successfully conducted in 15 Chinese cities between 23 October and 8 December. More than 4,400 trainees from provincial and local authorities, supporting agencies and key emitting enterprises from the power generation sector took part in the training courses that featured many renowned carbon market experts from NCSC, Tsinghua University, China Electricity Council and others.
The courses covered four main aspects: (I) Climate change policies and the national ETS; (II) Management of emissions data reporting, allowance allocation, trading, surrendering allowances, and compliance management by the provincial departments; (III) Registry system and account management in the trading system, emissions data reporting and compliance by the covered entities; (IV) Trial calculation of allowance allocations and simulation trading.
