The European Energy Exchange AG will waive its 5,000-euro ($6,370) annual fee for buyers who register before Dec. 31 to participate only in its European Union carbon permit market next year.
The Leipzig, Germany-based bourse also introduced a new rebate schedule for trading in spot and future carbon permits in its secondary market, it said in an e-mailed statement today. The exchange will charge 60 euro cents a metric ton in exchange and clearing fees for spot monthly trading volume of less than 1,000 lots, or 1 million tons, and as little as 40 cents a ton for monthly spot trade in excess of 5 million tons.
Exchange and clearing fees for derivatives contracts will range from 10 cents a ton for trade in excess of 15 million tons a month to 28 cents a ton for less than 3 million tons a month, the exchange said.
