NEa transfers emission allowances 2016
The 374 Dutch installations which are covered by the EU ETS and which have received a free allocation, will receive their 2016 allowances during the night of 26 to 27 February 2016 on their Operator Holding Accounts in the Dutch part of the European Registry. In total approximately 43.7 million allowances will de allocated.
National Allocation Decision
In the National Allocation Decision 2013-2020 the allocation has been determined for all installations which applied for free allocation. As a result of changes, the allocation of a few installations has been changed after that.
For 22 installations the allocation for 2016 is suspended. The NEa expects that the allocation for these installations will decrease significantly in 2016. By doing this, the NEa prevents installations from receiving more allowances than they are entitled to receive. The contact persons of the installations concerned have received a so called ‘suspension decision’.
The 10 aircraft operators covered by the EU ETS in the Netherlands which have received a free allocation will also receive their 2016 allowances during the night of 26 to 27 February. In total, the aircraft operators will receive 1,2 million emission allowances this year.
