November enviro markets update – STCs and LGCs

For the small-scale renewable market, the STC spot price has made up some of its losses while certainty might be coming to the scheme’s large-scale sibling.

With Q3 compliance having come and gone without any spike in price, the spot STC market first lost significant ground before making up some of its losses. STC submissions have recovered off their winter lows which suggest the Regulator will get the 2013 STC creation forecast almost exactly right, though there will still remain a surplus of STCs available for Q4 compliance meaning the long and arduous wait for those in the Clearing House will continue.

In the STC market the strength of prices early in Q3 (spot price reaching $39 in late August) gave many sellers confidence of further price increases as the end of the compliance period drew nearer.
