On 22 January 2014, the European Commission published its proposals for the EU 2030 Energy and Climate Framework.1 This package contained, among other aspects, two major proposals to reform the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS). In this Installment of In the Market, we address the question why a reform of the EU ETS is currently needed, what has been achieved so far, and what the Commission has now proposed to solve existing problems.
