Trading in European emission allowances (EUA in EU ETS) is certainly not part of your core business, unlike your plant, which you need for your electricity, heat, paper, cement, glass or other production.
In contrast to the first years of the 2nd and 3rd trading period, however, the EUA allowances required for your production can no longer be obtained for 5-7 euros, but cost well over 20 euros per tonne of CO2 since the introduction of the Market Stability Reserve in summer 2018, with a simultaneous - more or less - decreasing free allocation.
Except for few cases, operators in the 4th trading period no longer have the problem of wanting to achieve good prices when selling surplus allowances but are on the buyer’s side and - with a few exceptions on the auction market - want to get favorable prices on the secondary market.
Given that large electricity suppliers and very large industrial groups with many plants also participate at auctions and buy EUA Futures on the secondary market, only bilateral spot market trading is generally available to medium-sized and small industrial companies. The reasons for this lie in the possible simplicity and speed in obtaining these allowances.
What exactly is the problem?
As a plant operator, you receive a free allocation based on your last allocation application, which is in a constantly decreasing proportion to your need for allowances, which then results in a constantly increasing purchase requirement, which you have to cover as the price level rises.
These problems give rise to important questions for you, the answers to which have a great influence on the economic efficiency of your production as well as on the competitiveness of your company. In particular, the following questions arise: when, where and how the allowances are to be purchased, with which methodology, in which quantity, with which delivery risks, at which price and which additional costs.
You should have an answer to all these questions before you incur prices, costs, quantity and default risks that could cause your company major problems.
