KfW/ZEW CO2 Panel // 2010

March 2010

In the recent survey of the KfW/ZEW CO2 Indicator, Emission Trading Experts were asked about their preferences regarding the planned Europe-wide auctioning of Emission Allowances starting in 2013. A majority of respondents prefer centralised auctions and state that existing platforms, like exchanges, should be used for auctioning. The respondents expect Intermediaries in the Carbon Market, like Banks or Carbon Funds, to play a more important role with the start of Europe-wide auctions post 2012.
