Trading activities and strategies in the European carbon market

Final report


The European Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) constitutes a central European climate policy instrument. Since its start of operation in 2005, the carbon market has grown considerably in terms of trading volume and also with regard to the various players being active. This report aims to give an insight on the specific trading behaviour of market participants from the energy and financial sector based on publicly available data from the European Union Transaction Log (EUTL). It summarizes the findings and results of the two working packages of this research project. Whereas the first work package focused on the methodological foundations and economic research possibilities within the EUTL itself, the second work package undertook a hands-on analysis and evaluation of twenty entities operating in the EU ETS. The examined period comprises January 2013 to April 2016.
