e-ROC auction for CP16 ROCs

28th July 2017

Today's e-ROC auction was the first time that CP16 ROCs were available for sale (ROCs generated in April 2017) and was the last auction for suppliers to buy ROCs to meet their CP15 obligation. The July auction is always an interesting one as it contains ROCs from three different compliance years. (On this occasion CPs 14,15 and 16). The average price achieved in the auction was £48.39 (an average of the three CPs) and this was an increase of 54p on the month before. In terms of the spread CP14 ROCs sold for 2.1% less than CP16 and CP15 ROCs sold for 1.7% less than CP16.

We do not publish the actual average value by CP but are happy to provide more detailed information for any current users of either of our platforms; e-POWER and e-ROC.

In total 128,903 ROCs were sold which is over 60% up on last month.

22nd December 2016

In today's monthly e-ROC auction, over 1000 bids were placed in a very competitive auction between 9 bidders. The average price increased to £43.26, up 61p on last month. This may partly be a reflection of market sentiment following the news this week of the European Commission’s decision to approve the Contract for Difference awarded to Drax unit one. Up till now, the Drax unit had been receiving ROCs - in fact 5% of all ROCs issued during the first 5 months of this compliance period.

147,169 ROCs were sold; up over 50,000 on the month before and up over 30,000 on December last year.

Over 1/4 million ROCs sold in latest e-ROC auction

29th July 2016

The July auction is always a bit different with ROCs for sale from three compliance years; CP13 ROCs that are very close to their 'sell by' date, CP14 ROCs and the first batch of CP15 ROCs from April 2016 generation. As expected bidder interest was high with just under 1200 bids placed by 10 suppliers in today's auction, the second largest number of bids in 12 months.

257,927 ROCs were sold.The average price was £41.65 up 30p on last month. As you would expect CP13 ROCs sold at a small discount to this average. CP14 and CP15 ROCs sold at almost the same price reflective of the buy-out prices for both years being very similar and the oversupply in CP14 pushing through to CP15.

e-ROC Auction, another record month!

24th June 2016

Today 24 June 2016 may well be remembered for a different momentous event, however the e-ROC auction resulted in another record month selling 322,929 ROCs. Over the last two auctions in excess of half a million ROCs have been bid on by twenty different suppliers proving the e-ROC auction reaches a large part of the obligated supplier market.

In line with the oversupply of CP14 ROCs the average price slipped back 31p to £41.35.

Largest ever e-ROC auction pushes e-ROC past the 10 million milestone!

25th May 2016

Today witnessed the largest ever e-ROC auction with 256,344 ROCs sold. This resulted in a major milestone being achieved with over 10 million ROCs having been sold on the platform since the first auction way back in October 2002. At that time the auction was only run quarterly. e-ROC moved to monthly auctions in 2010 with average volumes of 50,000 ROCs being sold each month. Over the last year monthly volumes sold in the auction have increased to an average of over 125,000 ROCs per month.

A record number of electricity suppliers took part again today with bids being made by 15 suppliers. With continued over supply of ROCs for CP14 the average price in the auction was £41.66, down 15p on last month.

Record number of bidders in e-ROC auction

28th April 2016

15 bidders took part in the 27th April e-ROC auction placing over 1500 bids. This is a record number of bids and bidders, because in addition to the usual electricity suppliers a sizeable number of smaller suppliers also used the auction to meet their CP14 ROC obligation.

148,402 ROCs were sold, a little down on last month but more than double the number in the same month last year. Despite continued over supply of CP14 ROCs the average price from the auction held up quite well, down only 12p from last month to £41.81.

Over 150k ROCs sold in e-ROC auction

23rd March 2016

A larger number of bidders than usual took part; ten suppliers placed close to 600 bids resulting in the sale of 153,664 ROCs. This volume is down a little on last month but up almost 100k on the same month last year. The average price was £41.93 per ROC, down 26p on last month; a smaller fall than might be suggested by current market conditions of heavy oversupply for CP14 which may also feed through to CP15.

Forecasters have recently pointed to a circa 3.5 million increase in ROC supply from Drax and a 3 to 3.5 million ROC oversupply from offshore wind caused by November 2015 to February 2016 having the highest ever recorded load factors - December 2015 alone was 68%!
