Trading range narrows for Australian carbon spot price

The Australian carbon spot price ended the 2020 calendar year down 4.5 per cent year-on-year, reaching $16.53/t on December 31, down from $17.28/t on January 1 2020. The price of Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs) is currently $16.55/t.

Since climbing back above $16/t in early September, the trading range for ACCUs has narrowed in recent months, closing to $16.50-$16.55/t since early November on the back of low traded volumes and thin demand over the holiday period.

Over the year ahead, the prospect of a more ambitious long-term emissions target could lead to a more bullish outlook for ACCU prices, underpinned by momentum for the United States to return to the Paris Agreement, and expectations for laggard nations such as Australia to commit to more ambitious decarbonisation targets.
