arbcombo -- Update on June 24, 2016 MRR and Cap-and-Trade Workshop

Update on the Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) Friday, June 24,
2016 public workshop to discuss potential amendments to the
Mandatory Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reporting and Cap-and-Trade
Regulations related to the electricity and natural gas sectors.

Date: Friday, June 24, 2016
Time: 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time
Place: Coastal Hearing Room

Purpose of Workshop:
As announced on June 7, ARB will host a public workshop on June
24, 2016 to continue the public process to develop potential 2016
amendments to the Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting
Regulation (MRR) and Cap-and-Trade Regulation (Regulation).

This workshop will include discussion on electricity sector GHG
emissions accounting for the AB 32 statewide target and
Cap-and-Trade Program compliance obligations and staff's proposal
for post-2020 electrical distribution utility allowance
allocation. In the first part of the workshop, staff will
describe why amendments to the regulations are being considered
to ensure full GHG emissions accounting for electricity
transactions in the California Independent System Operator's
Energy Imbalance Market. The second part of the workshop will
include a staff update on post-2020 allowance allocation for
electrical distribution utilities.

UPDATE: Also at the workshop, staff plans to discuss allocation
to legacy contract generators without industrial counterparties,
and to discuss the following emissions exemptions: geothermal
generating units and geothermal facilities, natural gas hydrogen
fuel cells, low bleed pneumatic devices, and the qualified export
adjustment for imported electricity.

NEW POSTING TIME FOR PRESENTATION SLIDES:
1:00 pm Pacific Standard Time on June 20, 2016, at
http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/capandtrade/meetings/meetings.htm. This
should provide stakeholders time to review the materials and be
prepared to share comments at the workshop.

All interested stakeholders are invited to attend. A live
webcast of the workshop will be available at
http://www.calepa.ca.gov/Broadcast/.

Remote participants may e-mail questions during the workshop to
coastalrm@calepa.ca.gov.

Background

Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting Regulation

The Board first approved MRR in 2007, with revisions in 2010,
2012, 2013, and 2014. The upcoming 2016 amendments will clarify
and update the regulation, including changes to support the
Cap-and-Trade Program and for compliance with U.S. EPA's Clean
Power Plan.

Cap-and-Trade Regulation:
The Board first formally adopted the Regulation in October 2011,
and subsequently approved limited amendments to the Regulation in
June 2012, October 2013, April 2014, September 2014, and most
recently June 2015. The upcoming 2016 amendments will seek to
improve Program efficiency, update the Regulation using the
latest information, and chart post-2020 implementation of the
Program.

More information about ARB's Cap-and-Trade Program is available
at http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/capandtrade/capandtrade.htm.

asbestos -- Asbestos Working Draft of Test Method 435 Implementation Guidance Document

California Air Resources Board (ARB) staff has posted a working
draft of the "Test Method 435 Field Sampling and Laboratory
Practices Implementation Guidance Document."
In lieu of making formal regulatory changes to Test Method 435
