The EU ETS Price
The price of the EUA certificate on the ICE ECX London opened this morning (09.02.2021) the EUA trade sessions at 38,10 €/tCO2.
EUAs continued their record-breaking rally into a fourth day on Monday in the last decade, with 39,80€ / tCO2, bolstered by higher energy prices as freezing conditions set in in parts of Europe and some observers predicted further gains for this week.
Exchange operator ICE announced today that it will relocate its EU carbon allowance trading from its London-based hub to the Netherlands in Q2 of this year due to Brexit-related limitations, it announced Monday.
ZF Live: Romania is the last EU country on investments in the environment
In an interview with ZF Live, the founder of Carbon Expert, Casiana Fometescu, stated that “Romania is the last EU country on investments in the environment, although there was funding. The situation of industrial polluting companies is a dramatic one, because they have to buy over 2 million carbon certificates by the end of April, each with a price of 38 euros”
