Washington State's Cap-and-Invest Program

Our coverage started in the regulatory process years before the market opened to much regional fanfare in 2023. Our pre-market opening price forecast range of $46-$50 uncovered the first auction price of $48.50 exactly. The similarities of structure with the WCI makes for an interesting dynamic, as does the potential for linkage post-2027, both these factors playing well within our suite of interlinking models.

The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative

RGGI is the oldest carbon emissions market in North America. We’ve reported on it for a decade and have had a full product on it since 2020. Its structuring and Supply-Demand balance have lessened interest in it as an investable asset, nonetheless a clear forward picture of RGGI is important to understand the decision-sets of several major American energy firms.

Alberta Province's Technology Innovation Emissions Reduction regulation

The TIER market was instituted in response to the Canadian Federal regulation mandating a minimum provincial pricing on carbon. It is a facility-level output based system which includes offsets, recognition for removals, and regulatory fund credits. The province’s major oil and gas sector is the heart of the market, as such potential widespread application of CCUS to these facilities could accelerate global roll-out through learning-by-doing and technological gains.

The European Union's Emission Trading System

The EU ETS is the world’s longest-running carbon emissions market, and the largest too (for now). Not in cCarbon’s original American focus, we have since extended our coverage and modeling to include Europe. Its dominant position as the most liquid and highly-traded market, driven by investors who often have exposure to other international carbon markets, means that the EU ETS  is a significant driver of global carbon sentiment with strong interactive effects.
