Description:The European Commission approved Austrias National Allocation Plan for the years 2008-20012 on 2 April 2007, for the annual amount of 30.7 Mt. The amount is 6.4% less than what Austria had proposed and 2.3 Mt (7%) less than in the NAP for 2005-07. The government has decided that 1.3% of total allocation will be auctioned. New entrants are guaranteed free allowances by law, and up to 10% of the allowances could come from project-related activities abroad.
