Bloomberg New Energy Finance supports its clients as they navigate the Global, European, North American and Australian carbon markets. Current schemes are in a state of flux and we do not yet know if or when plans to implement cap-and-trade in North America or Australia will come to fruition. Clients use our regular market commentary, robust forecasting tools and objective research to get to grips with the big questions in the carbon markets and devise profitable investment and trading strategies.
The EU ETS is an environmental market on an unprecedented scale, in the middle of a period of considerable uncertainty: from the EU emission reduction target and the impact of new sectors joining the scheme from 2012 to the auctioning calendar and eligibliity of international credits. And all this is happening as we emerge from the worst economic shock in decades. In this context, Bloomberg New Energy Finance clears away the fog and explains what companies need to know to best exploit this carbon market and comply with their obligations in the most cost-effective way.
The next binding global climate treaty remains a dot on the horizon. Thus the future of the UN Clean Development Mechanism and Joint Implementation is unclear. And we do not yet know which project types and countries will be eligible from 2013 in the European Union Emission Trading Scheme – the biggest confirmed source of demand for carbon credits. Bloomberg New Energy Finance helps clients to devise profitable trading strategies and explains what they need to know to best exploit the Global carbon market.
With carbon legislation being considered at all levels of government across North America many companies find themselves facing either a new set of challenges or being presented with real opportunities. Bloomberg New Energy Finance supports its clients as they build their business by providing the most comprehensive and detailed analysis of factors affecting the development of US and Canadian emissions markets and the future of carbon prices across the region.
Australia’s Carbon Price Mechanism began on 1 July 2012 and covers installations releasing more than 25,000tCO2e per year from power generation, heavy industry, coal mining, oil and gas exploration, pipelines, legacy waste, and upstream natural gas supply. The carbon price is initially fixed at AUD 23/tCO2e in 2012-13 rising at 4.5% in real terms annually, and a forward market has now begun to develop as businesses seek to hedge future price exposure ahead of the start of the floating price period which starts on 1 July 2015. Our carbon team in Sydney supports clients with comprehensive analysis of the full range of market drivers and has been forecasting carbon prices since 2008.
