Press Release - EEX publishes revised 2019 Auction Calendar as well as 2020 Auction Calendar for Emission

The European Energy Exchange (EEX) has published the revised 2019 calendar as well as the new 2020 calendar for the auctioning of EU emission allowances (EUA) in coordination with the European Commission, the EU Member States and the EEA EFTA states auctioning on the common auction platform (CAP2) as well as with the German and Polish competent authorities.

The 2019 auction calendar has been adjusted for the period from September to December 2019 in accordance with the Auctioning Regulation due to the operation of the Market Stability Reserve (MSR) taking into account the publication of the 2018 total number of allowances in circulation (TNAC) in May 2019.

The revised auction volumes from September to December 2019 will be as follows:

 

CAP2

DE

PL

Volume per auction (in EUA)

2,744,500

2,834,500

4,714,500

Volume last auction (in EUA)

3,013,000

2,840,000

4,717,500

The total reduction of the auction volumes due to the MSR in the period from September to December 2019 amounts to 117,563,500 allowances (CAP2, Germany and Poland). Apart from the revised auction volumes, all other auction details remain unchanged.

Furthermore, EEX has published the 2020 auction calendar. In 2020, the MSR applies from January to August based on the 2018 total number of allowances in circulation. The volumes from September to December 2020 are preliminary as they will be subject to adjustments following the publication of the 2019 total number of allowances in circulation by 15 May 2020.
