Edwin Woerdman comments on emissions trading vote in European Parliament on national radio

20 February 2017
Dr. Edwin Woerdman

Dr. Edwin Woerdman is interviewed as climate expert on the Dutch national radio ('BNR Nieuwsradio') to comment upon the recent vote in the European Parliament on the revision of the EU emissions trading system. The interview starts at 9 minutes and 20 seconds.

Woerdman is positive about the aspiration of the European Parliament to double the intake of emission rights in the Market Stability Reserve (MSR), a kind of 'emission rights vacuum cleaner', in comparison with the original Commission proposal.
