EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) data viewer

Topics: ,
The EU ETS data viewer provides an easy access to emission trading data contained in the European Union Transaction Log (EUTL). The EUTL is a central transaction log, run by the European Commission, which checks and records all transactions taking place within the trading system. The EU ETS data viewer provides aggregated data by country, by sector and by year on the verified emissions, allowances and surrendered units of the more than 12 000 installations covered by the EU emission trading system.

Important note on "EU ETS information" categories:

  • The category "Total EU allowances" is the sum of the next two categories ("Freely allocated EUAs" and "Auctioned or sold EUAs"): "Total EU allowances" = "Freely allocated EUAs" + "Auctioned or sold EUAs".
  • Data for "Total EU allowances" and "Auctioned or sold EUAs" are only presented at national level and for all EU ETS installations, irrespective of their size, account status or the sector to which they belong. Therefore data is shown only when "20-99 All installations", "All sizes" and "All account status" are selected.
  • Information on verified emissions and freely allocated EUAs is presented for two different scopes: "Verified emissions" and "Verified emissions (scope corrected)"; "Freely allocated EUAs" and "Freely allocated EUAs (scope corrected)". Scope corrected verified emissions and freely allocated EUAs provide time-consistent information, meaningful for relevant trend analyses.
  • The category "Total surrendered units" is the sum of the next three categories ("Surrendered EUAs", "Surrendered ERUs" and "Surrendered CERs"): "Total surrendered units" = "Surrendered EUAs" + "Surrendered ERUs" + "Surrendered CERs".

More detailed information is available in the Manual of the EU ETS data viewer.
