'The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI, pronounced "Reggie") is the first mandatory market based program in the United States to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. RGGI is a cooperative effort among the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont to cap and reduce CO2 emissions from the power sector. RGGI compliance obligations apply to fossil-fueled power plants 25MW and larger within the nine-state region.

  • 'The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI, pronounced "Reggie") is the first mandatory market based program in the United States to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. RGGI is a cooperative effort among the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont to cap and reduce CO2 emissions from the power sector. RGGI compliance obligations apply to fossil-fueled power plants 25MW and larger within the nine-state region. RGGI establishes a regional cap on the amount of CO2 pollution that power plants can emit by issuing a limited number of tradable CO2 allowances. Each allowance represents an authorization for a regulated power plant to emit one short ton of CO2. Individual CO2 budget trading programs in each RGGI state together create a regional market for CO2 allowances. The RGGI states distribute over 90 percent of allowances through quarterly auctions. These allowance auctions generate proceeds, which participating states are able to invest in strategic energy and consumer benefit programs. Programs funded through RGGI have included energy efficiency, clean and renewable energy, greenhouse gas abatement, and direct bill assistance. An initial milestone program's development occurred in 2005, when seven states signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) announcing an agreement to implement RGGI. The RGGI states then established individual CO2 budget trading programs, based on the RGGI Model Rule. The first pre-compliance RGGI auction took place in September 2008, and the program became effective on January 1, 2009. The RGGI program is currently in its third three-year compliance period, which began January 1, 2015. (en)
  • Le Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI, ou ReGGIe) est une initiative régionale des États du Nord-Est des États-Unis visant à réduire les émission de gaz à effet de serre. Il s’agit d’un programme de plafond et d’échange d’émissions (cap and trade) destiné aux centrales électriques.Dix états participent actuellement à l’initiative. Le Québec, tout comme les provinces maritimes sont présentes en tant qu’observateurs. Au printemps 2007, le maire de New York, Michael Bloomberg a promis une réduction de 30 % des émissions de dioxyde de carbone d'ici à 2030 dans sa ville. Il a décidé de mettre en œuvre une politique de rénovation énergétique des gratte-ciels, de plantation d'un million d'arbres et d'instauration d'un péage pour les véhicules pénétrant dans Manhattan.
