Report summary

On 5 May 2015 the European Council and Parliament reached agreement on the introduction of a Market Stability Reserve (MSR) measure to the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) from 2019. The introduction of the MSR represents a substantial reinforcement of the ETS and will drive a rebalancing of the carbon market's supply demand balance. The cost of European emissions is likely to increase gradually in response to the MSR and high cost carbon will be a feature of the market in the long term.
