Carbon emissions Transcript
The ICIS European Daily Carbon Markets report also known as EDCM report is a two page report that follows price movements in the emissions market, which is important information for energy companies.
Carbon is a big part of the cost of running a plant so they need to know the daily prices of these commodities called EU allowances, EU airline allowances certified emission reductions and emission reduction units.
ICIS publishes daily price assessments of all four and adds contracts as they become liquid.
The ICIS Daily Carbon Markets report is useful because it is short, concise and clear.
Everything flows out from price reporting and we only cover market-moving news. If it’s in EDCM then it’s worth knowing.

Insight and analysis of factors driving prices.
After a successful first year, the California Cap-and-Trade program continues into its second year with many new developments and changes. After prices traded most of 2013 north of $14, they have fallen most recently as the expectation that the system will be oversupplied has been digested by the market. Although there was a short rally on compliance hedging at the beginning of the year, the market has fallen below $12 as the most recent auction cleared only 14 cents above the 2014 floor price of $11.34.
Still as we look ahead at what’s in store for the program, several important policy changes may heavily effect the market. From the potential for a carbon tax on fuels that was recently scrapped to the passing of several changes to the regulation by the Air Resources Board, the market is looking for more clarity as we end the first compliance period.
The latter half of 2014 will be telling as compliance entities will have to surrender an annual compliance of 30% of 2013 emissions. We also expect to see companies that will join the program in 2015, at the beginning of the second compliance period, to become more active in the market.
