EDF-SCDF Incorporating Mobile Sources into Shenzhen’s Carbon Trading System

Concept: 

Integrate mobile emissions into Shenzhen's landmark emissions trading system.

Key Accomplishments:

Conducted research study on Integrating Freight Vehicles into Shenzhen's Carbon Emission Trading System to support policy making.

Introduced and promoted the EcoPartnership project in the following international summits: (1) the 2nd China-U.S. Climate Summit in Beijing, exchange project experience during the summit; (2) the 4th Shenzhen International Low-Carbon City Forum and organized the Green Transportation Forum, including introducing the project outcomes in the Forum; (3) the 2016 China International New Energy Vehicles and Smart Transportation Exhibition and Summit in Shenzhen, introducing the project outcomes in the Green Transportation Forum.

Was invited to the 6th C40 Mayor Summit in Mexico and helped Shenzhen win the Green Finance Award with the Shenzhen Emission Trading System project from over 75 cities and 160 projects.

Conducted research and drafted mechanisms for integrating bus companies and private car owners into the Shenzhen Emission Trading System (ETS). The study on integrating bus emission into ETS was adopted by Shenzhen government.

Finished the feasibility study to integrate the freight vehicles into the ETS. 

Work Plan: 
Task 1 Public Transport ETS Feasibility Assessment
For public transport, augment energy consumption database, improve carbon inventory (considering both direct and life cycle emissions), MRV R&D, evaluate public transport policy options, and provide a feasibility assessment of including public transport vehicles into the ETS.
Task 2 Private Vehicle ETS Feasibility Assessment
For private vehicles, augment energy consumption database, improve carbon inventory (considering both direct and life cycle emissions), MRV R&D, evaluate public transport policy options, and provide a feasibility assessment of including private vehicles into the ETS.
Task 3 Cargo (water and land) ETS Feasibility Assessment
For cargo (water and land), augment energy consumption database, improve carbon inventory (considering both direct and life cycle emissions), MRV R&D, evaluate public transport policy options, and provide a feasibility assessment of including private vehicles into the ETS.
Task 4 ETS Feasibility Assessment, Design, and Implementation Plan
Considering the feasibility of the development of an mobile source ETS, the EcoPartners will provide recommendations relative to the merits of, structure/design, and implementation process.
