The emission trading system for road transport and buildings (BRT ETS) proposed in the Fit-for-55 package is essential to decarbonize road transport. But a major political and economic challenge is high price uncertainty – especially in light of the current energy price crisis. This makes finding political comprise now and governance of the system in the future very challenging. This webinar clarifies why carbon pricing is needed to decarbonize road transport, and how the BRT ETS could be implemented to balance political concerns with economic necessities.
