Feb 16 - Carbon Prices Soar 9 pct On Set-Aside Deal

16th February, 2012

Carbon prices soared 9 percent to an eight-week high above 9 euros on Thursday on news that European lawmakers on a key parliamentary committee had agreed to support a move to bolster carbon prices.

The front-year EUA contract gained as much as 75 cents to 9.11 euros, the highest level so far in 2012, after opening lower and falling to 8.10 euros on Thursday morning.

The bellwether contract was pegged at 9.05 by 1518 GMT on brisk volume of more than 23 million units traded.

MEPs on Thursday said party leaders in the EU Parliament’s industry committee will in a Feb. 28 vote support amendments to the bloc’s energy efficiency directive that include a provision to withdraw EUAs from the bloc's Emissions Trading Scheme’s third phase (2013-2020).

The agreed text does not mention an exact number, but rather tasks the EU Commission with analysing and recommending, by year’s end, how many permits should be withheld.

Meanwhile, peripheral energy prices also provided a boost to carbon, with key power and oil contracts firming.

German calendar 2013 power rates climbed 0.9 percent to 52.40 euros/MWh while front-month Brent crude oil edged up 75 cents to $119.68/barrel.

Summer 2012 UK gas and calendar 2013 API2 coal, on the other hand, were lower, falling 0.2 percent and 0.7 percent respectively.
