EU Carbon Sale Fails for First Time as Bids Miss Reserve Price

The European Union canceled an auction of carbon emissions permits for the first time as bids failed to reach the bloc’s secret reserve price.

The sale was called off because the price would have cleared “significantly” below the prevailing market rate, according to European Energy Exchange AG, the unit of Deutsche Boerse AG that runs the auction. EU allowances for delivery in December fell to a five-week low of 3.71 euros ($4.83) a metric ton on London’s ICE Futures Europe before paring the decline.

Well, if you’re not making anything, you don’t need to buy those silly permits.

    Could this be the reason Mr Gore had to sell his TV channel?

    Let me try to understand what the EU is saying… They decided to have a carbon permit sale but decided to call off the sale because they couldn’t get market rate for the permits. I thought a sale is where you sell something below market rate?
