ICIS Tschach Solutions celebrates 5 years of bringing analysis and news to global carbon emissions trading schemes (ETSs)

09 June 2015

ICIS Tschach Solutions is proud to announce five years of serving the European and global ETS markets.

Our analysts and journalists deliver robust and insightful analysis, price forecasts, data and news. We cover all the major carbon markets globally as well as the EU power market. With years of energy market experience behind them our analysts know how you want your information. That means our analysis is fast and executable, helping you to take a position quickly and confidently.

“I had the impression that there was no market model available that accurately incorporated the key driver of emissions trading behavior,” says Ingo Tschach, co-founder and current Head of Market Analysis, about the philosophy of the company. The Timing Impact Model is still the cornerstone of ICIS Tschach Solutions analysis and provides clients with a different analytical view on the market. 

“It makes me very proud to see the company growing so quickly over the last years. And with emerging cap and trade schemes all over the world, our mission to provide superior market analysis for better trading decisions is more vital than ever,”

adds Jan Ahrens, co-founder and current Director of Market Analysis.

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.
