Joint Research

China has developed its own roadmap to a successful national ETS to guide the country from the launch of its nationwide carbon market in 2017 until 2020 when it is expected that the market will move into the next phase of implementation with reinforced design features intended to support what is expected to be a well-functioning market.

The main purpose of these joint research activities is to identify appropriate and tailor made solutions to issues arising from the roll-out of the CN ETS and to overcome practical problems in that respect.The findings and outcome of the research activities shall be made available to MEE, the ECPPD as well as to the PSC, in order to be taken into account in the further work on the roll-out and establishment of the CN ETS as well as, where appropriate, in the implementation of the project.
