Site Access & Participating in Credit Auctions

Companies that qualify* for a Mobilis account pay no fees in 2012 to access the Mobilis trading platform, initiate auctions or bid on auctions.  Mobilis reserves the right to establish participation fees in the future.

Trading Fees

Our trading fees (paid by the company purchasing credits) are a percentage of the dollar value of the sales contracts executed by the buyer and seller. The fee schedule is disclosed in the Participation Agreement which is available to companies who qualify for a Mobilis Trading account.

Other Fees

Vehicle manufacturers qualifying for the Temporary Lead Time Allowance Alternative Standards (TLAAS) or the Small Volume Manufacturer (SVM) standards may be subject to special fees related to satisfying the good faith effort requirements in 40 CFR 86.1818-12(e) or 40 CFR 86.1801-12(k).

In a Forward Auction, a company with excess credits initiates an auction to sell credits and companies needing credits bid to buy them. As the auction proceeds, bidding drives up the price of the credits. When the auction ends, the company that has offered to pay the most for the credits is the winner.

See An Example

In a Reverse Auction, a company needing credits initiates an auction to purchase credits and companies with excess credits bid to sell their credits to that company. As the auction proceeds, bidding drives the price of the credits down. When the auction ends, the company that has offered to sell their credits for the least amount of money is the winner.
