Carbon Emissions Market Overview
The carbon emissions market gained momentum after the Kyoto Protocol came into force in February 2005. This Protocol sets legally-binding caps on the emission of six key greenhouse gases: carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), methane (CH4), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), nitrous oxide (N2O), and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). The Kyoto Protocol measures all of these greenhouse gases CO2 equivalents, collectively terming them as ‘carbon emissions’. The first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol extended from 2008 to 2012, and the second commitment period ranges from 2013 to 2020.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classifies end-users by greenhouse gases emissions: industrial, commercial, transportation, residential, and agricultural. Everyday processes such as home cooling and heating, transportation, and operating electrical appliances contribute to the emission of greenhouse gases globally. Conservation measures such as development of energy-efficient vehicles, improving building insulation, fluorescent lamps, development of geothermal heat sources hold considerable potential for growth.
Although carbon emissions were being traded in limited quantities over the past decade, the carbon emissions market witnessed exponential growth following the active involvement and participation of governments worldwide. Curbing and stabilizing the concentration of atmospheric greenhouse gases has heralded several opportunities in the carbon emissions market. As governments recognize that carbon emission schemes can only be realized via climate policy enforcements, and also that domestic politics and climate change affects the implementation of these schemes, the dynamics of this market are rapidly changing. This has impelled governments to take firm steps to ensure that carbon emission mandates effectively enter into force.
The carbon emission market is anticipated to register double-digit growth over the forecast period of this report from 2012-2018. Key opportunities will emerge for investments and utilities in the coming years.
