Exclusive LCFS CCM Analysis – Available to paid Premium newsletter subscribers beginning November 8, 2018

The Credit Clearance Market (CCM) provision of the LCFS program aims to match LCFS credit holders with Regulated Entities (REs) who have insufficient credits to meet their obligation at the end of the compliance year. The CCM price cap has also become the high-end benchmark for LCFS credits. LCFS credit prices are approaching the CCM cap, begging the questions: What will it take for the CCM to be effective? What factors will play into an RE’s decision to participate in the CCM? What effect will a shrinking LCFS credit bank have on the CCM’s ability to contain the ceiling price? Will credit holders offer credits into the CCM at a price that is capped? To what extent could deficit-holding REs depend on the CCM to cover their compliance deficits? Premium subscribers to Stillwater’s LCFS Newsletter gain access to our exclusive, expert market analysis answering these questions.
