The Clean Energy Regulator has today launched the new Quarterly Carbon Market Report for Quarter 3 2019.
David Parker, Chair of the Clean Energy Regulator said, to increase market transparency the Clean Energy Regulator is consolidating its current certificate and unit market updates into one unified quarterly report. It also includes some analytical stories on developments and likely trends in the market.
“As Australia’s carbon market continues to grow and a convergence of the markets is becoming more apparent, it is increasingly important to provide market participants with a holistic view of Australia’s carbon market,” Mr Parker said.
The Clean Energy Regulator releases market information across its three administered certificates markets—large-scale generation certificate (LGCs),
small-scale technology certificate (STCs) and
Australian carbon credit unit (ACCUs).
The first Quarterly Carbon Market Report covers market activity for Quarter 3 2019 and replaces the former LGC, STC and ACCU market updates.
Highlights for Quarter 3 2019:
“As large corporations and industrial facilities seek to reduce emissions and offset their operations, the use of LGCs to demonstrate genuine offsetting of emissions has and is expected to become more apparent,” Mr Parker said.
“LGC and ACCU price convergence may see business go beyond their compliance obligations, and with enough renewable energy capacity accredited to meet the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target, LGCs can increasingly help companies achieve their emissions reduction goals.”
The next Quarterly Carbon Market Report for Quarter 4 2019 will be released in early 2020.
