I think there is something wrong with the data regarding free- allocation in the ETS Data Viewer[…]/emissions-trading-viewer-1 . The volume of 1.1 Freely allocated allowances is just so high. It cannot be that free allocation alone is higher than verified emissions. It does not make sense. Furthermore, this number does not match the sum of 1.1.3 Free allocation for modernisation of electricity generation (Art. 10c), 1.1.2 Free allocation from the new entrants reserve (Art. 10a(7)), 1.1.1 Free allocation to existing entities (Art. 10a(1)). The number reported as the aggregate is indeed twice the sum of its components. I could not find any other place to report this inconsistency.
