Why the EU carbon price doubled in 2021

Anders Nimgaard Schultz, Director, Power-to-X & Gas Infrastructure:

"The higher carbon price is in large part driven by higher gas prices. More expensive gas has increased the use of coal, but because coal emits more CO2 than gas, the request for carbon credits increases which drives the carbon price up. In other words, the rising carbon price is a sign that carbon emissions are actually going up," says Anders Nimgaard Schultz.  

"If carbon prices stay at a high level for longer time it will make it more beneficial to construct renewable energy and implement carbon capture."
