MEPs Avril Doyle (EPP, IR), Linda McAvan (PSE, UK) & Chris Davies (ALDE, UK) have jointly tabled a key amendment that seeks to reserve upto 500M EU CO2 emissions allowances to reward succesful early-mover large-scale demonstration projects.

The allowances would be issued from 2013 onwards, but qualifying projects would secure public-private agreements to participate in the scheme from around 2010 onwards, thus enabling a much earlier start to construction works.

The amendments will be discuss in the EP Environment Committee on 8 September and then be voted on in the same Committee on the 8 October.
