A Comparison of Various MRV Systems in the Context of ETS Designing and Linking – Development of a „Good Practice“

In the past nine years, since the EU–Emission Trading Scheme (EU-ETS) came into force, worldwide numerous ETS have emerged or are under consideration for implementation. The approaches regarding institutional and operational design chosen by the respective national, regional and local authorities differ remarkably. While the various designs reflect specific national characteristics and priorities, linking the different systems to a larger carbon market might be, thus, a difficult process.

In this regard, the regulations on Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) constitute the fundamentals of credible and transparent ETS that are accepted both, by directly participating stakeholders as well as by representatives from the "to-be-linked" systems.

The conference which is part of a 3-year research project conducted by FutureCamp Climate and TÜV Nord, commissioned by the German Emissions Trading Authority (DEHSt) at the Federal Environment Agency (UBA) and the Federal Ministry of Environment (BMUB) shall bring together high level decision makers and experts from MRV Systems (implemented or under development) around the world. Having our guiding question "when is a ton a ton" in mind, we would like to discuss with you key pillars of MRV Systems that ensure reliability, completeness, transparency, accuracy and comparability but also cost efficiency. This is seen as prerequisite for mutual acceptance during linking processes.

The conference will be held in English.
