CarbonOutlook™ Model

Modeling emissions and prices (near-term and long-term)

We have our proprietary models that consume information from a variety of data repositories to generate near and long-term forecast, for emissions as well as carbon prices. Our models cover most North American carbon market jurisdictions.

Short term models

Our near term analysis in our weekly and monthly commentaries capture (a) Macroeconomic data, (b) Secondary market data, (c) Corporate and entity data, as well as (d) output from our proprietary algorithms. We use the models to forecast upto 1 year out. Our near term emissions forecasts have had over 99% accuracy for the past three years.

Long term models

The long term models generate outlook for 2030 and have a quarterly resolution. They can also create scenarios for 2040 and 2050. The models capture the interplay between different carbon markets; and is unique in that aspect. Our Cap and Trade model has over 200 variables that can be fine-tuned to construct a scenario.
