News from the Carbon Expo (Cologne, 28 – 30 May 2014)
The most important meeting on climate change in Europe and the European carbon market was opened on 28th May and closed its sessions on 30th May 2014. The first impression that we felt after a few years of participation at these events was that this time the conference was smaller compared to other years. Although the volumes traded on the carbon market have been expanding, their values have decreased, which had impact on the size of the event in Cologne .
One discussed issue in Cologne was the carbon price up-trend for the next period (including the end of 2014 ) until 2017 when EUAs will be re-introduced on the market at the end of the ” backloading ” process , which implementation started this year.
EUA price forecasts are slightly different. For example, please note the following values predicted for the end of 2014 :
Reuters: 10 euro
The ICIS : 9 euros
Energy Aspects : 8 euros
