(April 24 NACW) ETS Simulation Workshop - For Smarter Market Design and Capacity Building
When: Wednesday, April 24, 20198 - 2:00 - 4:30 pm
Where: InterContinental Hotel, Grand Ballroom A (3rd Floor), 888 Howard Street (corner of 5th and Howard), San Francisco
Who: Environmental Defense Fund and Duke University’s Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions (co-sponsors) and ETS stakeholders
Why: To enhance your understanding of how ETS markets work and how program design affects results
How: Using CarbonSim and your fully-charged laptop
SUMMARY: Emissions trading systems (ETSs) have the potential to cap and cut pollution, spur investment in innovative technologies, and contribute to economic growth. The nature of these benefits is a function of program design, administration, and the aptitude of those who administer and are subject to the ETS. That’s where EDF’s carbon market simulation tool – CarbonSim – comes in.
CarbonSim is an artificial intelligence-enhanced, highly interactive, multi-lingual, application that teaches the principles of ETS and brings markets to life. It provides policymakers, regulated companies, NGOs, and the public with a means to train key staff, gain risk-free experience, and collaborate to maximize program benefits. More info:
DURING THIS SESSION you will manage a virtual facility, implement a carbon portfolio management strategy, and measure your performance against environmental and economic metrics. Through this collaborative, experiential, and fun game, you will enhance your understanding -- and become a more effective advocate - of environmental markets. Environmental Defense Fund and Duke University’s Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions (sponsors) and ETS stakeholders.
Your simulation leaders will be EDF's Josh Margolis and Duke's Jackson Ewing.
REMINDER: Registration is required. Bring your fully charged WiFi-enabled laptop.
