European carbon prices are close to €80 a tonne, well below their peak of nearly $100 hit in February, after the European Commission announced plans to sell more carbon emission permits to fund the EU’s exit from Russian energy. The European Commission unveiled a €210 billion plan for Europe to end its reliance on Russian energy by 2027, and to use the pivot away from Moscow to speed up its transition to green energy. The commission has 2.6 billion certificates in reserves and plans to sell between 200-250 million ETS certificates from Market Stability Reserves by the end of the decade. Still, the EU is seeking alternatives as some countries fear the proposal would undermine the bloc's main climate change policy.

EU Carbon Permits
Trading Economics Carbon Emissions Allowances Prices are sourced from the European Union Emissions Trading System (EU ETS), the world's largest cap and trade greenhouse gas emissions market. Allowances for carbon emissions are first allocated considering EU directives for the maximum amount of greenhouse gases that can be emitted. Allowances for carbon emissions are then auctioned and traded.
