BARCELONA26 May – Respondents to IETA’s annual market sentiment survey expect European carbon prices to rise for the first time in four years. 
 

This years survey, conducted again by PwC, found that respondents expect the average Phase III EUA price to be €10.79 – up from €8 last year, and the first rise since 2011. Prices between 2020 and 2030 are expected to average €18.40, according to the survey of IETA’s members.
 
This 10th edition of IETA’s annual market sentiment survey found that respondents see a lower carbon price needed to drive low-carbon investment than five years ago, averaging €29.60 now compared with two-thirds saying a price of €40 or more is needed in 2010. 
 
However, unsurprisingly, an overwhelming number of respondents (88%) see carbon markets as an effective policy instrument – with 58% saying markets are the most effective driver of low-carbon investment, up from 36% in 2010. 
 
The Paris climate talks will lead to an expansion of global carbon markets, according to 58% of respondents – with strong growth seen in Asia and North America in particular. Notably, all respondents expect China to have a national ETS, with 64% expecting the market to be implemented by 2020.

“This year’s survey is a sign that, after a few years of crisis and reform, market participants see a stronger EU ETS in the future, and that sentiment is increasingly positive around the world,” says Dirk Forrister, CEO and President of IETA. 

“Recent years have seen a burst of activity in new market development, which is reflected in the survey. The message for Paris is that markets matter – and the challenge for policymakers is to bring together all these bottom-up efforts and find a way to make the links between domestic actions and international contributions.”

“Carbon market sentiment is on the rise for the first time in years,” says Jonathan Grant, director of PwC’s climate and sustainability practice. “It may seem obvious that IETA members would give this endorsement, but after years of low prices and policy turmoil in carbon markets around the world, business is still saying that market-based approaches are the most effective.”

He adds: “On Paris, there’s a big gap between the members’ ideal outcome and their actual expectations – few expect legally binding targets.  The IETA survey sends a clear signal to governments that the Paris agreement should accelerate the use of markets nationally and internationally.”

The survey report will be released at a press conference at Carbon Expo in Barcelona on 26 May at 9am CET. Hard copies will be available at the press conference and it can also be downloaded from the IETA website.

COLOGNE, 28 May, 2014 – An overwhelming majority of IETA members expect carbon markets to have a role in an international climate change deal, expected to be agreed in Paris next year, according to IETA’s ninth annual Market Sentiment Survey (available here).

Over 80% of respondents to this year’s survey, conducted by PwC, expect the Paris 2015 climate agreement to pave the way for more carbon markets globally, with the potential to link them in the future. Around two-thirds of respondents (63%) believe that the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) will continue on in some form, with most of those replying think it is likely to be reformed.

COP 19 Brief

December 2013

COP 19 showed us that much more work is needed to make the links between finance and markets in order to spur private sector investment onto a 2 degrees pathway.

The 19th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP) and the 9th Conference serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP) were held in Warsaw, from 11-22 November (although it spilled over to Saturday 23 November). This was also the 2nd official meeting of the Ad Hoc Working Group for the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP). The first week of the negotiations also saw the 39th meetings of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) and Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) convene. Both the SBI and the SBSTA continue to be technical forums to work out the details of UNFCCC architecture on issues as far ranging as market mechanisms, adaptation and REDD+.
