Clean spark spread

The spread equal to the regular (or ‘dirty’) spark spread minus the CO2 emissions cost for gas-fired power plants. This spread then represents the net revenue on power sales after gas costs and emissions allowance costs. An analogous spread for coal-fired generation plants is typically referred to as a clean dark spread or a dark green spread.
