Archived Auction Information and Results

In November 2014, the California Air Resources Board (ARB) and Québec’s Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment and the Fight against Climate Change (MDDELCC) began holding joint greenhouse gas (GHG) allowance auctions to allow market participants to acquire GHG allowances.  Prior to the first joint auction, as part of the Cap-and-Trade Program, ARB held eight (8) jurisdiction specific quarterly GHG allowance auctions beginning in November 2012.

Auction Notices are supplemented with additional materials providing detailed requirements and instructions for participating in a joint auction as well as examples of how to determine the amount of a bid guarantee, how holding and purchase limits are applied, how U.S. and Canadian currencies are handled, and examples of how joint auctions are settled. The most recent supplemental material is provided with the most recent Auction Notice posted on the ARB Auction Information web page available at http://www.arb.ca.gov/auction. Supplemental materials for prior auctions are available from ARB staff.
