After price increases of 25 to 30 % in June and early July, presumably driven by the expected announcement of the EU Commission’s plan to intervene in the EU ETS, prices have dropped back towards record lows.

Carbon prices have fallen 60 to 70% over the past year. Since the start of the year, EUA prices are up 3% while CERs are 10% lower. The economic crisis is still taking its toll on prices; exacerbated by the continued political uncertainty about how to counter the over-supply in the EU ETS. To top it all off, according to a new study the EU ETS may see its CER demand saturated through issued CERs as early as in 2013 or 2014.
