The best-performing energy commodity over the past year is not oil or gas &a;ndash; it is carbon allowances from the European Union&a;rsquo;s carbon market, the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS).

The price of a tonne of carbon emitted under the ETS is now nudging &a;euro;15 (it was &a;euro;14.35 at the time of writing) a level it has not seen for seven years &a;ndash; and it is predicted to rise even higher in years to come.

Financial think tank Carbon Tracker says that the allowances will double in price by 2021 and could reach &a;euro;55 a tonne by 2030 if the European Commission introduces rules that align EU emissions targets with the requirements of the Paris climate agreement. This would have a radical effect on Europe&a;rsquo;s energy markets, spelling the end for coal-fired power and leading to a surge in renewable energy, energy efficiency, energy storage, smart grids and demand-side response. It also highlights how other economies around the world could be affected by their own carbon markets.
