Assessing reform options for the EU ETS

25/06/2013

Ed: This article predates November 2019, when ÅF and Pöyry came together as AFRY.

Pöyry Management Consulting's assessment of a potential reform to the EU ETS - the allowance supply adjustment mechanism (ASAM) - has been published by Fortum.

The ASAM is one of the alternative solutions proposed for structural reform of the EU ETS.  It is designed to introduce short term flexibility in the supply of allowances, while leaving the overall long term market drivers in place.

Pöyry was asked by Fortum to conduct a critical review of the mechanism including a limited quantitative assessment.  You can read the executive summary below.
