In Europe, EEX and IncubEx have made the EEX market for listed European Union Allowance (EUA) derivatives the second largest exchange. The open interest market share in the EUA futures contract has increased from 5% in 2017 to 22% today. Together, EEX and Nodal Exchange – the US arm of EEX Group – now offer the broadest global range of listed environmental futures and options contracts, including carbon credits and offsets, renewable energy credits (RECs) and renewable fuel credits. The cooperation between IncubEx and the EEX Group started successfully in Europe and was later extended to North America.

In North America, IncubEx partnered with Nodal Exchange to launch its first environmental contracts in 2018. Since then, Nodal has listed more than 100 different environmental products that complement Nodal’s core power and natural gas futures contracts. Open interest market share in North American environmental products on Nodal Exchange has grown from zero to over 17% today.

“The combination of IncubEx’s environmental expertise with Nodal’s exchange and clearing expertise has resulted in an outstanding offering of green futures and options to better serve the needs of market participants in North America,” said Paul Cusenza, CEO of Nodal. “We are proud of our global collaboration with EEX, Nodal and IncubEx, which enables us to play a role together with our market participants by contributing to global efforts to better manage the climate change challenges we all face and to preserve our planet the future.”

“When IncubEx was formed in 2016, we felt there was an urgent need for a dedicated team focused solely on developing environmental markets with the right exchange partners,” said Michael MacGregor, CEO of IncubEx. “By working with EEX and Nodal we have built significant market share which has solidified our partnership as innovators in the environmental markets but more importantly we have delivered products and solutions to serve our global customer base and continue to grow to accelerate the environmental markets. Looking ahead, there is tremendous momentum, bolstered by unprecedented support for net zero targets and market-based solutions to address environmental challenges.”

IncubEx was founded by senior executives of the Chicago Climate Exchange (ie Climate Exchange plc), which established the world’s first voluntary but legally binding carbon market.
