About this initiative


EU Member States can compensate some companies in sectors with high electricity consumption (electro-intensive users), for part of the higher electricity costs arising from the EU emissions trading scheme. The compensation minimises the risk of carbon leakage, which occurs when emission costs cause EU companies to relocate their production to non-EU countries that have less ambitious climate measures. The rules allowing for compensation will be updated to ensure that they are adapted to the new emissions trading scheme for 2021-2030.
