Amerex has been an innovative pioneer in the North American natural gas markets since 1990.

As of November 2013, Amerex brokered an average of 6 million megawatt hours of electrical power and 140 billion cubic feet of natural gas each business day.

Amerex began brokering emission allowances in 2001 with a focus on U.S. Federal SO2 and NOx forwards and options. In 2002 we expanded our service offerings to include multiple regional markets such as HGB NOx. Since that time the traded emissions markets have continued to expand as more and more states are required to implement pollution reduction plans as part of the Federal program. Today, Amerex brokers all the U.S. Federal and regional emissions markets including NOx, SO2, HGB NOx, ERCs, DERCs and RECs. Amerex offers both long and short term forwards as well as options in each of these products and is an industry leader in structured emissions transactions.
