Auction dates

The auction from 09.03.2020 (12:00) to 11.03.2020 (17:00) was cancelled without any award on the basis of Article 48 paragraph 2 letter b of the CO2 Ordinance, as the clearing price differed significantly from the applicable price on the secondary market in the EU.

The auction will be repeated as follows:
Monday, 08.06.2020 (12:00 local time) to Wednesday 10.06.2020 (17:00 local time).

Due to the low demand for emission allowances at EU secondary market prices, the volume for the repeat auction will be reduced to 175,000 CHU2.

In accordance with Article 48 paragraph 2 letter b of the CO2 Ordinance, the FOEN may cancel an auction without making an award if the clearing price during the auction period differs significantly from the applicable price on the secondary market in the EU.

Based on Section 9.4 of the General Terms and Conditions for Auctions, the FOEN also announces the following notice: The FOEN considers a significant deviation (towards the bottom) in the low single-digit per-centage range of the clearing price from the average secondary market price in the EU during the week prior to the auction period and the first two days of the auction as a significant deviation.

The FOEN will inform about further auctions in 2020 at the earliest in June, after the next auction.
