EEX has shown multiple times in the past that they are moving on something different then a high pace. Now, realizing that the Joint Implementation World is close to dead by the end of the Kyoto committment period EEX brings up a new ERU contract.

With a growing interest in the development of the EUA VAT trails in Germany rumours say that IETA/CMIA are planing side events and are now gathering topics and suitable speakers.

Once again the people who have made the carbon ‘market’ possible and strived for years against the ineptitude of the EC to form a workable carbon trading system will meet in Amsterdam. Once again the debate will continue, what wonders can be achieved, moving away from a fossil fuel economy. Sharing the equity of carbon responsibility through the CDM et al.

We saw some heads rolling in this year: Yvo de Boer resigned, Connie Heedegard gave up during COP15 last year, and, very most important of all, Laurent Segalen left Nomura!! Heaven help!
