The article presents information about the oscillation of European Union emission allowance (EUA) prices in February 2012. The article describes how EUA prices began low in February but later increased as traders anticipated the European Union (EU) Parliament committee on energy and industry to enact a proposal to restrict the number of allowances. Other information related to the EU's 2020 energy-efficient targets is also introduced.
