pCER Survey

  • The IDEAcarbon pCER SurveyTM product measures price signals for primary market Certified Emissions Reductions (CERs) under the United Nations Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).
  • Relevant to both carbon market buyers and sellers, the survey brings price transparency to the opaque primary CER market.


  • The pCER Survey is constructed from a questionnaire that asks participants what the appropriate price should be for carbon credits in the CDM project cycle according to a sequence of risks, thereby enabling price-of-risk discovery.
  • IDEAcarbon's pCER Survey is confidential, enabling high participation rates.
  • The pCER Survey is derived from questioning respondents including project developers, investment banks, utilities, industrials and multilateral institutions.
  • Access to the pCER Survey entitles subscribers to more than 3 years of data, predating and succeeding the economic crisis.
