The Bush administration has proposed improvements to the current voluntary GHG emission reduction registration program under section 1605(b) of the 1992 Energy Policy Act. Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Joseph I. Lieberman (D-Conn.) recently unveiled their plan to require all U.S. power plants to set mandatory targets for the reduction of industrial GHG emissions. James M. Jeffords (I-VT) and the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee approved a bill that would mandate substantial reductions in GHG emissions by utilities and would also require older power plants to modern power plant emissions standards. What is the regulatory future of GHG emissions reporting in the U.S. and how is it affecting the GHG emissions trading dynamics in the U.S.? Conference highlights include:

-The international climate for GHG emissions trading — U.S. and Canada, European Union and Eastern European trade dynamics;

-Status of U.S. regional and state trading programs and their affect on national policy

-Case studies covering utility GHG trading initiatives;

-The Kyoto Protocol — Implications of U.S. withdrawal;

-Accounting, verification and monetization of GHG reductions

-The Chicago Climate Exchange — Use a voluntary rules-based market for reducing GHG emissions
