Emissions Trading / Carbon Market News (2017-11-20)

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Close to the end of the world climate conference in Bonn, Great Britain and Canada initiated a voluntary covenant of 18 nations to start waiving coal power, including our neighbouring country France. Germany, which has led the renewable power movement sooner, justifies their dependency from coal power, what makes it impossible to reach the self-made climate protection targets.

Apart from that, there was no other big things, albeit the basics of proving the goal achievements of the national reduction targets became discussed. They will be undersigned next year in Poland.

In Germany, last night failed the coalition negotiations, because the liberal party FDP became aware of irreconcilable differences on too many points after four weeks of discussions. Since social party SPD still don’t want to take further responsibility to govern, there are only two possibilities left, namely new elections or a minority government, which contains the risk of standstill for important political intensions. Anyhow, the failure of the negotiations will impair the position of chancellor Angela Merkel. The upcoming weeks will become worthwhile, even when instant needed political renewals will be paused.

The quotes of European carbon emission allowances became slightly better against the week before and closed at 7.48 Euro.
