Trialogue negotiations between Parliament, Council and the Commission broke up this evening (9.20pm) without a final agreement on the terms of the CO2 Storage directive. Negotiations will reconvene on Friday morning at 9.30am, after the next ETS trialogue meeting on Thursday evening. The ETS session will include further talks on on the proposed demonstrations aid scheme, based on setting aside some ETS allowances. Another outstanding issue is the proprosal in Article 32 to set a CO2 emissions performace standard on new coal-fired power plants.
