CITL for ETS (transaction log for emissions trading scheme, carbon trading)

Filed under: Carbon Trading — howardchong @ 8:41 pm

This post is just to note that I have downloaded the complete Community Independent Transaction Log (CITL) for Europe’s carbon trading Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) from their website. I wrote a Python script to automate the form submission/downloading process, and used Stata to merge operator information to holdings.

So, if you need this data, please ask and I will happily supply it.

I am also doing some interesting things with matching the CITL to other datasets, but prefer to discuss these things only when I am 1) further along in the process and 2) if someone is interested.



  1. Hi Howard,

    I’d be really interested to see this data. Would you be able to share it with me?

  2. Dear Howard,

    I would be very interested in viewing this data. Would you share it to me?

  3. This dataset is being used in the following working paper (for which I am a co-author):

    Profiting from Regulation: An Event Study of the EU Carbon Market

    Please take a look.

    I am happy to share the data I collected, but only under the following conditions (until the paper is published):
    1) You must send me a description of what you want to use it for. At least 5 sentences.
    2) You send me your bio.
    3) Your paper is not very similar to the paper referenced above.
