Emissions Trading / Carbon Market News (29/06/2020)

Dear Madam or Sir,

As part of the measures to overcome the Corona crisis, the German Federal Government is funding the purchase of purely electric cars with almost € 10,000, which makes the currently comparatively more expensive vehicles significantly more affordable.

The Federal Environment Agency now has a recently published study to counter critics who estimate the production and operation of an electric car to be more harmful to the climate based on old data. Even if you include all factors today, an electric car has a clear advantage over the entire life cycle. And by 2025, the carbon footprint of an electric car will again visibly decrease from 134 grams of CO2 to 101 grams of CO2, taking into account the production and usage load.

And if that is still not enough as a selling point – the Advantag fleet has been using fully electric drives since 2013 and has since reduced maintenance and maintenance costs to a fraction of vehicles with combustion engines.

Prices for CO2 emissions remained high last week, hitting a temporary high of EUR 25.75 on Wednesday before easing again at the end of the trading week.
