News Romanian NAP published for consultation

The Romanian Government has published its draft National Allocation Plan (NAP) for the period 2007 and for 2008-2012 for public consultations. Romania has developed the 1st and 2nd NAP as one integrated document using the same methodology and input data, whenever possible, and aims to notify the European Commission of both NAPs at the same time.

In total 222 installations have been identified. The total amount of allowances are 81.32 Mton in 2007 and 457.39 Mton in 2008-2012. About 47% of national emissions are covered by the EU-ETS.

Romania has applied a two-step approach to allocation with sector caps for the energy sector, metals, cement, lime, glass, ceramics, and cellulose and paper. The historical reference year emissions have been taken as the average of the two years with highest emissions in the period 2001-2004. Top-down macro economic production and emission projections have been leading in the allocation on sector and installation level. Reductions in carbon intensity have been accounted for on sector level. Romania intends to allocate a bonus for early action and efficient cogeneration. A new entrants reserve and a Joint Implementation reserve for current and new JI projects have been set aside.

The NAP has been developed over the last 5 months by MEWM in close cooperation with the Ministry of Economy and Commerce and the Ministry of Administration and the Interior. The Dutch Government has provided technical assistance through a consortium of Ecofys, CAP SD and local consultants. The National Environmental Protection Agency has been responsible for the inventory of installations. The Institute for Studies and Power Engineering (ISPE) has supported the analytical work.

The draft NAP (main document and annexes) can be found on the website and on the website of the Ministry of Environment and Water Management (MEWM) The English translation will be available soon. On the website, draft Ministerial Orders on the monitoring and reporting guidelines and on permitting are also published for public consultations (in Romanian only). MEWM welcomes comments on the draft NAP until September 29th, 2006.
