After completing its first compliance cycle by end of 2021, China’s ETS is ready to step into the second stage. Based on the feedback of power companies and industry associations, while the overall progress is seen in such a short period, some gaps still exist when some compliance companies intended to follow the regulations to do MRV, manage their carbon asset, surrender allowance, trade in market, etc. The performance of various companies revealed the discrepancy of their capacity of dealing with ETS. Besides, some crucial policy documents, such as ETS MRV guidelines, allowance allocation plans, compliance requirements, are in the process of update. Renewed CCER rule is supposed to be issued. All of these updates need to be interpreted and disseminated among power companies. Under these contexts, the continued demand-driven trainings hosted by the project team will make difference to power companies ruled by China’s ETS.
