Emissions trading introduction

Emissions trading is entering a new era. A last-minute agreement at the UN climate change meeting in Durban last month committed the signatories to work towards a new international treaty to restrict global greenhouse gas emissions from 2020. The new treaty - which will have ?"legal force"- requires developing countries as well as industrialised countries to make voluntary pledges to reduce emissions. The Kyoto Protocol ? which limits the greenhouse gas emissions of many industrialised countries and provides the foundation of the carbon emissions trading market ? was extended into a second period which starts in 2013. Meanwhile the recent economic slowdown has cut emissions and depressed prices in the emissions trading market ? but the UK government will introduce a carbon floor price starting in April 2013 to support investment in a low carbon future that will change how the market operates.

This one-day briefing on the evolving global carbon market introduces you to carbon emissions trading, explaining the "alphabet soup" of abbreviations, rules and regulations that affect energy prices and policy now and in the future.

Global oil market fundamentals

What lies behind the relentless rise on oil prices? Is it peak oil, refinery constraints, Opec production quotas or hedge funds? This essential briefing explains how market fundamentals interact with investment constraints, speculative pressures and competing political interests to shape the price of oil. Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of the structure and operation of the global oil market. This one-day seminar covers the entire oil supply chain from upstream production to downstream refining and marketing, providing an invaluable foundation for informed oil market analysis.

Gas markets

Gas markets throughout Europe are undergoing significant changes as liberalisation and competition emerge. The UK has the most liberalised gas market in the world, and has seen almost continual change and development from 1990 to the present day, with further changes expected due to ongoing market evolution and the forecast UK gas gap. MJMEnergy offer a range of gas market courses covering key areas of this complex, fast-moving subject at both introductory and advanced levels.
