Britain's giant Barclays Bank has sold its carbon trading business while Deutsche Bank, JPMorgan and UBS have closed their carbon trading operations or climate change advisory practices. Others such as Morgan Stanley have reduced their trading desks from full time to part time operations.
Last week the EU member states agreed in principle to reforms aimed at cutting emissions by increasing the cost for companies to buy what they described as the "right to pollute".
Under the deal, the auctioning of 900 million emission permits (EUAs) would be withheld from the market until the later past of the decade to drive the permit price up.
EU Climate Change Commissioner Connie Hedegaard responded to the maneuver be tweeting "Finally! Common sense prevailed. "

Deutsche Bank's decision to walk away from carbon trading could be in part a knee-jerk reaction to depressed carbon markets or a result of the fraud investigation that caused the bank to close its German emissions trading desk several years ago, or both.

The investigation is believed to be connected to the value-added-tax (VAT) "carousel fraud", where goods were imported VAT-free then sold on to domestic buyers at a price that includes VAT.
In 2011, a German court jailed six individuals over a €300 million ($391 million, £249 million) fraud selling carbon emission permits through Deutsche Bank.
In the same year, the Office of the Attorney General of Germany said in a statement that Germany has lost €850 million in tax revenues to frauds involving carbon emissions trading. (Source: IBTimes, Dec. 12, 2012) Contact: Deutsche Bank, www.db.com

The German banking behemoth last week lodged its application with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) to have its Australian Financial Services License amended, and expects approval early next year. To date, the ASIC has issued 43 carbon trading licenses to companies ranging in size from COzero and Greenfleet to ANZ, Commonwealth Bank and UBS.
The 317 companies liable to pay the carbon tax in Australia have, for the most part, focused on compliance and may establish their own carbon trading teams.
According to Ric Brazzale, managing director of Green Energy Trading and president of the REC Agents Association, the carbon market, including voluntary abatement, was "more vibrant" several years ago. (Source: Sydney Morning Herald, Dec. 3, 2012)

Ocotillo Wind will be the first renewable energy project to interconnect into the newly constructed Sunrise Powerlink, a 500-kv transmission line that was developed to bring renewable power from the Imperial Valley to San Diego. The wind project will provide energy equal to the needs of approximately 125,000 homes in Southern California each year. Pattern entered into a 20-year PPA with San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) for the sale of energy produced by the project. Blattner Energy is managing construction of the project.
Ocotillo Wind will be Pattern Energy's fifth operating wind project in North America and, upon completion, will bring the Company's total to more than 900 MW of installed wind power capacity. Pattern expects to complete a wind project in Puerto Rico and bring a number of wind projects in Canada into construction over the next 12 months.

Deutsche Bank has looked into Abbott's promise to repeal the carbon tax and projected that it might not happen until April 2014; nearly two years after the legislation takes effect in July of this year. "Each step in the constitutional process takes time, and in practice, it could take eight to 14 months for the repeal bills to pass, with risks of further delay at each stage of that process," research analyst Tim Jordan wrote in a report released yesterday. "On that timetable, the earliest a repeal bill could pass after an August 2013 election would be April 2014, 22 months after the carbon price comes into force."
But whether repeal is the ideal outcome is another issue, since abandoning a market mechanism for reducing emissions would only provide a temporary reprieve for major emitters. The carbon price is likely to have a modest impact on most listed emitters: most high-carbon firms in trade-exposed sectors will receive free units (and in the case of steel makers, cash grants) to offset the impact; resources companies face a small impact relative to earnings; airlines will pass on the cost in ticket prices; and utilities are likely to recover most of their additional costs through higher electricity prices.
The Labor government and an opposition coalition have a bipartisan commitment to cut emissions by 5 per cent below 2000 levels by 2020.

Many of these credits are held by sovereign governments, which may use them for compliance with targets through this year under the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, said Richard Chatterton, an analyst for New Energy Finance in London. Chatterton forecast use of banned credits in 2012, the final year they're allowed, will fall 24 percent to 135 million tons.
Factories and power stations used 254.6 million offsets in the bloc's cap-and-trade program, the data show. Offsets may be used to cut compliance costs with Europe's carbon trading system.
Emitters may use 277 million tons of credits next year, 8.6 percent more than last year, Chatterton forecast. That's less than the 300 million tons forecast by Deutsche Bank AG and 400 million tons by Barclays Plc. (Source: Barclays, New Energy Finance,, 2 May, 2012)
