EEX Publishes 2023 Sales Calendar For National Emissions Trading System
EEX has published the sales calendar for the year 2023 in coordination with the German Emissions Trading Authority (DEHSt) at the German Environment Agency (UBA).
The sales dates will take place twice a week throughout the year, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Participants will be able to purchase nEHS certificates on these days between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm CET. The first sales date will take place on 10 January 2023, the last sales date is scheduled for
7 December 2023.
On these dates, companies obligated under the nEHS can purchase nEHS certificates for 2023 (“vintage 2023”) throughout the year at a fixed price of 30 euros per nEHS certificate. In addition, between January and September 2023, a limited number of post-purchases of nEHS certificates for 2022 (“vintage 2022”) is possible also at a fixed price of 30 euros per certificate.
The possibility of post-purchases is limited by law to 10 % of the quantity that was already purchased by the respective participant in 2022 (§ 10 Para. 2 S. 3 Fuel Emissions Trading Act (BEHG)). nEHS certificates of vintage 2023 can also be issued for the 2022 reporting year. Companies must surrender nEHS certificates to cover their 2022 emissions by 30 September 2023. The last sales date with the possibility of post-purchases of 2022 vintage certificates is therefore the 21 September 2023.
Since the start of the nEHS sales in October 2021, more than 391 milion nEHS certificates have been sold via the EEX platform. The corresponding revenues are being channelled into the Climate and Transformation fund (“Klima- und Transformationsfonds”; KTF).
