OPIS Cap and Trade Pricing Information
On August 1, 2014, OPIS began providing price discovery for the California carbon market in its U.S. West Coast Spot Market Report, estimating the impact of the state’s cap-and-trade regulations on transportation fuels delivered at the rack level. This includes daily price discovery for California Carbon Allowances (CCA) and a daily California Cap-at-the-Rack (CAR) assessment. On October 1, 2014, OPIS began publishing CAR price assessments for wholesale gasoline, diesel and biodiesel in the OPIS California Rack Reports. OPIS also publishes the Carbon Market Report with comprehensive carbon credit prices and market news.
