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.

  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
    http://www.nber.org/papers/w15572

    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.
