CA and General Market Commentary:

  • The California Air Resources Board (ARB) has released the 2022 Auction Reserve Price. The auction floor price will be $19.70 for each of the four auctions held in 2022, up from the 2021 floor price of $17.71.  This increase is due in part to a 5% annual escalator, and in part to the large increase in inflation for 2021 as expressed in the CPI-U index change from November 2020 through October 2021.
  • November Auction Results- ARB announced on November 24th that the 4th quarterly auction had sold 68.6 million current vintage allowances at $28.26. The auction had a bid-to-cover ratio of 1.51.  3% of allowances were purchased by compliance entities, the rest were purchased by speculators and other intermediaries.
