ICIS Relaunches Carbon Market Portals

17 January 2016

ICIS is pleased to announce a range of improvements to its Carbon Market Portals which has re-launched today (18 January). The newly enhanced portal provides comprehensive analysis and data on policy, fundamental developments, company behaviour and price movements for carbon markets around the world.

The Carbon Market Portals have undergone significant development to enhance coverage and usability and to incorporate new features. It now includes interactive graphs and data manipulation tools, extended forecasts through 2030 for the EU ETS, an expanded RGGI market products and lots of small improvements.

 “Based on the feedback we received over the past year, we worked a lot to get an even better product in front of our customers,” says Jan Ahrens, Business Director Carbon Market Analytics at ICIS. “We aim to provide the most relevant and easy to access information to global carbon markets, and this new platform is a further big step.”

 To help users access the relevant information even more quickly, the pages have been widened, portal navigation has been re-organised and extended model explanations now make it easy to understand the various models and methodologies at a glance.

ICIS' Carbon Market Portals are a web-based data solution that analyses the latest developments and price movements in carbon markets around the world to support decision-makers involved in carbon trading. The portals contain price forecasts based on a unique and highly predictive model which combines carbon market fundamentals and behavioural patterns of major market players.

Since its launch in June 2010, ICIS Tschach Solutions has provided information and intelligence to the carbon markets, utilising a unique combination of quantitative and qualitative research as well as expert opinion to deliver detailed insight into emissions and carbon trading schemes. We offer products covering the California/Quebec, RGGI, EU, South Korea and China carbon markets.
