Slovenia's National Allocation Plan (NAP) is the thirteenth NAP to be assessed by the European Commission for the 2008 - 2012 emissions trading period. The Commission has accepted the proposed total number of emission allowances equivalent to 8.3 million tonnes of CO2 because this figure is lower than Slovenia's verified emissions for 2005. Slovenia has nevertheless been requested to amend its NAP in order to address two issues. First, the NAP must include more information on the way new entrants will be treated. Second, Slovenia must reduce the use of credits under the Kyoto Protocol's 'flexible' mechanisms to 15.7 per cent of its total allocation. These credits are used for investment in clean technologies in third countries. Slovenia's NAP will be approved automatically once these changes have been made.
