The European Investment Bank sold 625,000 European Union carbon permits for 2013 delivery at 7.18 euros ($9.05) a metric ton in its fifth auction on the European Energy Exchange AG, according to data on the bourse’s website.
EEX is hosting four auctions per week for the EIB in June and July, selling a total of 20 million allowances from a special post-2012 reserve known as the NER300. Revenue from the sales will aid clean-energy projects in the 27-nation bloc. Until the end of May the EIB had sold NER300 permits in over- the-counter and exchange-based trades.
