METHANE EMISSIONS DATA

We provide access to methane emissions data attributable to U.S. facilities of publicly-listed energy and power companies. Members may access this dataset for backtesting and research purposes to discover actionable trading signals. View sample data. We intend to offer this – and related – data on a real-time basis if members determine that they offer actionable insights. Why methane matters?

Human or automated traders and portfolio managers could use methane emissions data in several different ways, including:

  • Hedge fund, energy and algorithmic trading – Enhance rules-based strategies with automated circuit breakers which may anticipate price volatility and directional movements based on early indicators of methane emission anomalies
  • Market making – Widen spreads or pull quotes when significant negative news impacting a given company or its peers is anticipated
  • Engagement – Trigger efforts by large institutional investors such as pension funds and mutual fund managers to affect directional change at given companies or their peers via shareholder resolution, proxy votes, disclosures, or other pressures.
