The Ecologic Institute is pleased to invite you to participate in the first of a 4-part guest-speaker webinar series devoted to discussing key topics on Emission Trading Systems (ETS). These webinars will also mark the launch of a new online course providing in-depth instruction on ETS theory and design, freely available on 25 November 2015.
Webinar 1 | November 25th, 2015 | 16:00 CET (10:00 EST)
In the first 45-minute webinar, Market Dynamics and Risks, guest speaker Marcus Ferdinand (Thomson Reuters) will discuss how ETS participants manage risks and give specific examples of how design and influence of politics has affected emission trading in the past. Host Elizabeth Zelljadt (Ecologic Institute) will provide course context and facilitate a question and answer session among guest speaker and participants.
Upcoming webinars include:
Webinar 2 – The Past, Present and Future (January 2016)
This webinar will discuss the evolution and forecast the future of ETSs. The guest speaker will deliver a candid discussion of what building the EU ETS was like and will comment on the utility of ETSs in the INDCs being proposed at COP21.
Webinar 3 – Developing Countries (February 2016)
This webinar will feature an expert from an emerging economy to comment on experiences in becoming ETS “market ready.” The speaker will provide unique examples of capacity gaps that were overcome and others that remain a challenge.
Webinar 4 – Keeping it Legal (March 2016)
This webinar will discuss the unique legal challenges of establishing and implementing regulatory ETSs. The guest speaker will discuss examples of national and international case law to illustrate legal considerations for future ETSs.
