EEX Carries Out Fifth Dutch Primary Market Auction

(PresseBox) ( Leipzig, )
Today, the European Energy Exchange (EEX) carried out the fifth primary market auction of European emission allowances (EUA) on behalf of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture & Innovation and the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment.

The volume of 1 million EUA was auctioned off as planned. The total amount of bids was 3,620,000 EUA. Thus, participants demanded more than 3 times the auction volume. In the auction, in which 8 companies took part, the price was determined at EUR 7.02 per EUA. At the time of the auction, the reference price in secondary trading on the EEX Spot Market amounted to EUR 7.03 per EUA.

Of the total amount of EUR 8 million EUA for the second trading period 7 million EUA have already been auctioned for the Netherlands on the EEX Spot Market. The last Dutch primary auction will take place on 14 June.

In addition to the auctions for the Netherlands, EEX will continue weekly auctions of emission allowances on behalf of the Federal Ministry of the Environment. On a weekly base 945,000 EUA of the second trading period are auctioned-off on the EEX Spot and Derivatives Market. Furthermore, as the transitory platform for Germany, EEX will auction-off a volume of up to 85 million Emission Allowances of the third trading period.

In addition, EEX acts as cooperation exchange of the European Investment Bank (EIB) in the framework of the NER300 program. Here, the EIB can use the EEX as auction platform, sell emission allowances directly on the EEX secondary market and conduct transactions with OTC clearing.

EEX and Eurex offer their participants a platform for trading in CO2 emission allowances. Within the framework of this cooperation, which was launched in December 2007, the Eurex participants can trade the CO2 derivatives products listed on EEX through their existing infrastructure and a simplified admission process.
