The European Energy Exchange (EEX) has published the revised 2021 calendar as well as the new 2022 auction calendar for the auctioning of EU emission allowances (EUA) in coordination with the European Commission, the EU Member States and the EEA EFTA states which participate in the common auction platform (CAP3) as well as with the German and Polish competent authorities.

The 2021 auction calendar has been adjusted for the period from September to December 2021 in accordance with the Auctioning Regulation due to the operation of the Market Stability Reserve (MSR), taking into account the publication of the 2020 total number of allowances in circulation (TNAC) in May 2021.

Furthermore, EEX has published the 2022 auction calendar for the auctioning of EU allowances (EUA). The MSR reductions of auction volumes apply from January to August 2022 based on the 2020 total number of allowances in circulation (TNAC). Therefore, the volumes from September to December 2022 are preliminary as they are subject to adjustments due to the MSR and following the publication of the 2021 TNAC figures, scheduled for May 2022.

EEX will hold EUA auctions in the framework of the common EU auction platform (CAP3) on behalf of 25 EU member states and the EEA EFTA states. In addition, the auctions will include a volume of 40 million allowances for the Innovation Fund as well as 68.3 million allowances for the Modernisation Fund. The CAP3 auctions are scheduled to take place on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during the period from 10 January to 19 December 2022.

EEX will also conduct weekly EUA auctions on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany on Fridays, starting from 14 January until 16 December 2022.

EUA auctions on behalf of Poland will be scheduled bi-weekly on Wednesdays during the period from 19 January to 7 December 2022.

The bidding window for all EUA auctions conducted by EEX will be open from 9.00 to 11.00 am CET.

Auctions of EU aviation allowances (EUAA) are not scheduled yet for 2022 and will be added to the 2022 calendar at a later date.
