EEX wins primary auction contract for German EUAs

The European Energy Exchange (EEX) will run the primary auction for European emission allowances (EUAs) in Germany on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment starting in January 2010.


In July this year, the German ministry agreed to auction 10% of German emission allowances annually for both 2010 and 2011.

There will be two auctions per week covering 870,000 tons – one spot auction on Tuesday of 300,000 tons and one futures auction of 570,000 tons.
