This report sheds light on the impact of the current policy scenarios under discussion in the Parliament and the Council in the context of the Market Stability Reserve (MSR). ICIS analysts look at the key elements which will determine the functioning and the level of ambition of the MSR including the start date, treatment of back-loading volumes, thresholds and response rate as well as other design parameters.

The impact of the MSR on carbon prices varies based on:

  • Back-loading volumes in or out?
  • Start date of the MSR
  • Trigger thresholds and response rate of the MSR
