COMMISSION DECISION

of 26 March 2013

on determining Member States’ annual emission allocations for the period from 2013 to 2020 pursuant to Decision No 406/2009/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council

(notified under document C(2013) 1708)

(2013/162/EU)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Decision No 406/2009/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 April 2009 on the effort of Member States to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to meet the Community’s greenhouse gas emission reduction commitments up to 2020 (1), and in particular the forth subparagraph of Article 3(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The greenhouse gas emissions from installations covered by Directive 2003/87/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 October 2003 establishing a scheme for greenhouse gas emission allowance trading within the Community and amending Council Directive 96/61/EC (2) as deriving from the Union Registry, Commission Decisions, National Allocation Plans and the official correspondence between the Commission and the respective Member States constitute verified emission data in the sense of the fourth paragraph of Article 3(2) of Decision No 406/2009/EC.

(2)

The total greenhouse gas emissions from gases and activities as defined in Article 2(1) of Decision No 406/2009/EC submitted pursuant to Decision No 280/2004/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 February 2004 concerning a mechanism for monitoring community greenhouse gas emissions and for implementing the Kyoto Protocol (3) in the year 2012 as established following the 2012 initial review conducted by the Commission pursuant to the Guidelines for the 2012 Technical Review of Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories (4) constitute reviewed greenhouse gas emissions data for the years 2005, 2008, 2009 and 2010 in the sense of the fourth paragraph of Article 3(2) of Decision No 406/2009/EC.

(3)

To ensure consistency between the determination of the annual emission allocations and the reported greenhouse gas emissions for each year, Member States’ annual emission allocations should be calculated also by applying the global warming potential values from the 4th IPCC assessment report adopted by Decision15/CP.17. The annual emission allocation calculated as such should become applicable from the first year for which the reporting of greenhouse gas inventories using these new global warming potential values becomes compulsory pursuant to Article 3 of Decision No 280/2004/EC.

(4)

Data currently reported in the national greenhouse gas inventories and the national and Union registries are not sufficient to determine, at Member State level, the CO2 civil aviation emissions at national level that are not covered by Directive 2003/87/EC. CO2 emissions from flights not covered by Directive 2003/87/EC represent only a very minor part of the total greenhouse gas emissions, and collecting additional information on these emissions would create a disproportionate administrative burden. Therefore, the quantity of CO2 emissions of the inventory category ‘1.A.3.A civil aviation’ should be considered equal to zero for the purpose of determining the annual emission allocations.

(5)

The annual emission allocations for a Member State for the year 2020 should be calculated by subtracting the quantity of verified greenhouse gas emissions of installations that existed in 2005 from the reviewed greenhouse gas emissions for the year 2005 and adjusting the outcome by the percentage laid down in Annex II of Decision No 406/2009.

(6)

The quantity of verified greenhouse gas emissions of installations should be determined as follows:

for Member States that participated in the Emissions Trading Scheme as of 2005: the quantity of emissions of installations covered by Directive 2003/87/EC in 2005 adjusted by the quantity of greenhouse gas emissions of those installations which were included in or excluded from the Emissions Trading Scheme from 2008 to 2012 due to an adjusted scope applied by the Member States and the quantity of greenhouse gas emissions from installations temporarily excluded in the year 2005 but not excluded between 2008 and 2012 from the Emissions Trading Scheme,

for Member States that participated in the Emissions Trading Scheme as of 2007: the quantity of greenhouse gas emissions of installations covered by Directive 2003/87/EC in 2007,

for Member States participating in the Emissions Trading Scheme as of 2013: the quantity of greenhouse gas emissions of installations covered by Directive 2003/87/EC in 2005 (as communicated by the respective Member State and reviewed by the Commission).

(7)

The average quantity of greenhouse gas emissions in the year 2009 of a Member State with a positive greenhouse gas emission limit pursuant to Annex II of Decision No 406/2009/EC should be calculated by subtracting an average quantity of verified greenhouse gas emissions from installations covered by Directive 2003/87/EC in the years 2008, 2009 and 2010 in the respective Member State from its average total reviewed greenhouse gas emissions for the years 2008, 2009 and 2010.

(8)

The annual emission allocations for a Member State with a positive greenhouse gas emission limit pursuant to Annex II of Decision No 406/2009/EC for the years 2013 to 2019 should be defined by a linear trajectory starting with that member State’s average quantity of greenhouse gas emissions in the year 2009 and ending with its annual emission allocation for the year 2020.

(9)

The annual emission allocation for a Member State with a negative greenhouse gas emission limit pursuant to Annex II of Decision No 406/2009/EC for the year 2013 should be calculated by subtracting average quantity of verified greenhouse gas emissions from installations covered by Directive 2003/87/EC in the years 2008, 2009 and 2010 in the respective Member State from its average total reviewed greenhouse gas emissions for the years 2008, 2009 and 2010.

(10)

The annual emission allocation for a Member State with a negative greenhouse gas emission limit pursuant to Annex II of Decision No 406/2009/EC for the years 2014 to 2019 should be defined by a linear trajectory starting with that member State’s annual emission allocation for the year 2013 and ending with its annual emission allocation for the year 2020.

(11)

The verified greenhouse gas emissions of installations unilaterally included in the Emissions Trading Scheme in accordance with Article 24 of Directive 2003/87/EC during the period from 2008 to 2012 should not be accounted for in the average quantity of verified greenhouse gas emissions from installations covered by Directive 2003/87/EC for the years 2008, 2009 and 2010 as this would result in double counting of greenhouse gas emissions during future adjustments of the annual emission allocations pursuant to Article 10 of Decision No 406/2009/EC.

(12)

In view of Croatia’s accession to the Union, its annual emission allocation for each year of the period from 2013 to 2020 should be determined using the same methodology as for the other Member States. These values should become applicable as of the date of Croatia’s accession.

(13)

Given the adoption by the European Council of the Decision 2012/419/EU of 11 July 2012 amending the status of Mayotte with regard to the European Union (5) as of 2014, the annual emission allocations for France as of 2014 are calculated by taking into account the relevant reviewed greenhouse gas emissions.

(14)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Climate Change Committee,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The annual emission allocations for each Member State for each year of the period from 2013 to 2020 are set out in Annex I and shall apply subject to any adjustments published pursuant to Article 10 of Decision No 406/2009/EC.

Article 2

Notwithstanding Article 1, where an act adopted pursuant to Article 3 of Decision No 280/2004/EC provides for Member States to submit greenhouse gas emissions inventories determined using global warming potential values from the 4th IPCC assessment report as adopted by Decision 15/CP.17 of the Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the annual emission allocations set out in Annex II shall apply as of the first year for which such reporting of greenhouse gas inventories becomes compulsory.

Article 3

The annual emission allocations for Croatia as set out in Annex I shall apply as of the date of entry into force of the Treaty of Accession of Croatia.

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.

Done at Brussels, 26 March 2013.
