Another important objective for the Commission was to develop an impressive package of measures that could be presented at the United Nations' Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio in June 1992. The Directorates-General for Environment and for Energy (DG XI and XVII) were in charge of these efforts. There was a considerable struggle within the Commission and between the Member States concerning the choice of policy instruments. Several options were discussed, including fiscal and economic instruments, energy efficiency measures, speed limits and improved transport management (Skjrerseth 1993a: 16-18).

In addition, such a tax would look good externally. If adopted, it would have considerably bolstered Environment Commissioner di Meana's position at the 1992 Rio Conference. However, due to the consensus requirements in EU 'fiscal ' environmental policies (also after Maastricht), it was clear from the start that this was bound to be an ambitious and controversial proposal. It was initially suggested that there should be no C02 levy, since this would favour nuclear power. The proposed tax was thus a so-called h ybrid carbon/energy tax, starting with $3/barrel in 1993, increasing by $1 annually 3.

Questions about internal implementation, particularly in the energy sector, thus loom large. Third, many important specific issues remain concerning the implementation of the institutional structures agreed in Kyoto. These include 10 Michael Grubb and Joyeeta Gupta crucial debates about 'principles, modalities, rules and guidelines' for emissions trading, and the development of the articles on Policies and Measures. These issues are explored further in Chapter 10 of this book. Finally, many issue-areas of the regime have not yet even reached the stage of significant development.
