Emissions Trading / Carbon Market News (2018-04-09)

Dear Sir or Madam,

According to the German government, the EU should in future invest at least one fifth of its budget in projects that promote climate protection. It thus supports the Green Growth Group’s demand to invest a minimum of 20% of the EU budget from 2021 on appropriate programs and climate-friendly projects. Currently, the German government spends about 3.7 billion annually on climate protection projects, which is just over one percent of the federal budget.

A weaker market environment in the energy sector, especially for oil and electricity, also increased the market for CO2 emission rights last week. For example, prices moved sideways-downwards after lower demand at the auctions, and the EUA lost around 30 cents on a weekly basis against the particularly bullish last week. Only the CER were able to gain slightly in view of the approaching end of the compliance submission deadline for 2017.

Even the start of the new week starts a bit cautiously with a minus of about one percent.
