August has seen the launch of the new UK ETS reporting system, METS, which replaces the previous EU based ETSWAP portal.
As part of this transition, only the current active permit and a sole primary contact for each installation have been migrated, with the primary contact expected to add all other users as necessary. The UK Regulators have started to send registration links by email to the relevant contact for each site, with staggered onboarding set to continue over the course of August.
Having been involved in the testing of METS in recent months, Swan Energy will be on hand to guide our clients through navigating the new system in preparation for the upcoming emissions reporting cycle.
The move to the new system comes while the UK Government continues to consult on several key changes to the scheme, which would see the scheme diverge from current EU ETS legislation. Click here to read the Developing the UK ETS Consultation Response.
