ABSTRACT
The article reports that the European Commission (EC) has announced that power stations in Europe will have to pay for permits to release carbon dioxide in Europe. Accordingly, the proposal will become a law in the European Union's 27 member states in 2009 following its approval. The move aims to cut green-house-gas emissions across the European Union by at least 20% in 2020. One of the proposals of the commission is that power plants and energy-intensive industries will no longer receive a generous allocation of emissions allowances which is free of charge.
