      • US Emissions Markets

      • Voluntary GHG Markets


GHG Market – Status Report


Global picture

  • Kyoto Protocol entry into Force, February 16, 2005

  • EU Emissions Trading Scheme up and running

  • Domestic trading scheme announced in Canada to start 2008

  • Domestic trading scheme expected Japan from 2008

  • Schemes in California and Eastern US States (‘RGGI’) from 2008 & 09

  • Scheme in NSW Australia now being extended to cover the whole country

  • Plus government buyers in Europe, Canada and Japan

  • Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) being sourced globally from developing countries to feed most of the above markets


EU ETS


Background

  • Came into force on 1 January 2005 (although trading has been going on for over a year). Implemented by the EU as part of its overall Kyoto compliance strategy – covers 40% of emissions in the EU

  • Covers the following sectors:

    • Power generation

    • Minerals

    • Iron and Steel

    • Pulp and Paper

  • Around 12,000 installations covered across Europe, ranging from prisons, hospitals and universities to the largest power generators.


European Allowances (EUAs)

  • Defined in Directive 2003/87/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 October 2003

  • When surrendered to the regulator, 1 EUA enables an installation included in the scheme to emit 1 tonne of CO2

  • EUAs exist as an entry in electronic registries (one per Member State)

  • Anyone may open one or more registry account

  • EUAs are issued by each Member State to operators of installations included in the scheme, once its national allocation plan is approved by the EC


Timeline

  • First allocation 28th Feb 2005

  • First retirement of EUAs by 30th April 2006

  • Second allocation by 28th Feb 2006

  • Second retirement of EUAs by 30th April 2007

  • Third allocation by 28th Feb 2007

  • Third retirement of EUAs by 30th April 2008

  • 1ST ALLOCATION FOR 2ND PHASE BY 28TH FEB 2008 BUT THESE ALLOWANCES CANNOT BE USED FOR COMPLIANCE IN PHASE 1


Prices and activity to date

  • Since the start of the scheme, prices have ranged from 5 – 20 Euros – today high of 19.90 Euros …

  • Right now they are at around 19 Euro (very volatile), for delivery on 1 December 2005, and slightly more for 2006 & 2007 deliveries

  • So far -- > 50 million EUAs have traded – some predictions that could be 5 billion Euro market in 2005.

  • Predictions are, that activity will increase significantly in the next few months and continue to grow. Already some days are seeing 1 million allowances trading

  • Between 30 and 70 big companies will be trading actively, for compliance and speculatively, predominately utilities but also banks and spec traders

  • Typical lot size is 10,000 or 20,000 allowances, although you also see lots of 50,000 and 100,000 going through

  • No options yet, and only a few spot transactions

  • Some swaps…(CERs for EAUs with discounts)


Price of carbon andprice of electricity…

  • National Allocations in each Member State – last week the Italian Allocation having large impact on the market.

  • Gas, coal, oil and power prices – highest electricity prices in history in Germany – result of rising natural gas prices…

  • As electricity prices go up – Renewable prices go up – if “spot” market

  • Weather – harsh winters, mild to exceedingly warm summers, rainfall levels

  • Demand and supply due to increased economic activity

  • Market sentiment and individual participant pressure – easy market to move with minimal trades – has been known to jump 50cents in 10K one trade with no fundamental driver behind it

  • Demand and supply due to increased economic activity (much longer term)

  • Abatement costs in each country


Canada


Canada

  • Climate Change Plan issued April 13, 2005

    • Domestic and International Trading – Government and Large Final Emitters –

    • Renewable Energy related incentives

  • Budget 2005 included provisions for –

    • Climate Fund – 75 – 115 MT

    • Partnership Fund – 55 – 85 MT

    • LFE 45 MT

  • Renewable Energy – 15 MT

    • Wind Power Production Incentive

    • Renewable Power Production Incentive

    • Tax Measures – for energy efficiency and renewable energy


Canada cont’d

  • Currently – Renewable producers cannot claim GHG offsets if receiving “Incentives” as “double-counting”

    • Government is claiming tonnes…

    • Renewable Producers are arguing against this…

  • “Offsets” Paper due out in June from Canadian government – some think there will be an component for renewables…

  • Ontario:

    • Green RFPs – goal of 2700 MWs by 2010

      • 3 RFPs – most recent one for up to 1000 MW

    • Project developers – may/may not receive “offsets” (depending if Government claiming tonnes…in return for contract premiums)


Summary/conclusions

  • GHG and Renewables markets are developing

  • In the EU – Allowance prices seem to be following the price of power…

    • Lots of things affect EU Allowance prices…

  • Price of power – directly impacted by coal, gas and oil prices…

  • In Canada, much will depend on what GOC issues for implementation details…

  • In Ontario … contract negotiations…

  • How Canada uses green attributes

    • For compliance... In meeting Kyoto, etc.

    • Issue – if get WPPI or RPPI and Price Premium – potential for double counting.


One last thought…

  • The real potential for Renewables and Renewable technology deployment … into developing countries who are part of Kyoto…
