The EUA Dec’13 contract is currently at €3.28. The ICE exchange announced yesterday that they will relaunch their spot CER product on the 27th May, after two weeks of no trading facility. Today, we will take a quick trip around the world’s cap and trade emission trading schemes. In California this week, officials held their third auction, achieving record prices. The state sold 14.5 million allowances at $14 each last Thursday. On sale also, allowances that covered emissions in 2016, 7.5 million were sold at a discount of $10.71/allowance. Allowances in the secondary market witnessed healthy trade after the auctions, reaching the $14.50 level. To date the Californian auctions have raised $256 million for the state and $556million for utilities who must utilise the monies to keep end users costs reasonable.

ongoing global climate negotiations. China is now responsible for a quarter of global industrial and power producing emissions. The announcement gives a much needed boost to a successful outcome in developing a satisfactory frame work for an international treaty to be agreed in 2015 and enforced by 2020. The third largest global emitter, Russia has regressed further this week, after backing out of Kyoto during the year. Officials have pointed to the EUETS as an example of cap and trade not working.

As the US is Europe’s main trading partner, Europe’s main energy policy makers have taken note. A revised call has been made to ensure energy policy post 2020 is determined sooner rather than later. It is estimated that if the European market becomes fully integrated a saving of €35 billion could be achieved annually in electricity costs in 2015 compared to 2012. This is why it is essential to have a well functioning carbon market to aid renewable investment. The EUA/CER spread narrowed this week to €2.98 at close of business last night versus the €3.24 spread we witnessed the week before and €3.15 the previous week.

This auction cleared at €3.43 / EUA. In total an extra 15,078,000 EUA’s were brought to the market place.
