Access via Trayport to the world's first biomass exchange...
A key element of the EU 20-20-20 policy is the 20% increase in use of renewable energy by 2020. This target highlights the importance policy-makers are placing on making energy generation more sustainable.
Biomass represents an area of growing importance in renewable energy, especially in the industrial wood pellets market. An effective and innovative trading platform is essential for achieving the EU renewables target in a competitive and, therefore, cost-effective way. It also represents an opportunity for enterprising energy traders – a fact emphasized by recent market consultation studies that indicate a strong growth potential for such exchange-traded biomass products.
Consolidating & standardising the product specifications (including the sustainability criteria) is vital to the viability of the burgeoning biomass market. Trayport is now able to offer access to trade standard Biomass contracts in a transparent manner on APX-ENDEX's Biomass exchange. The exchange traded wood pellet contracts that are offered include 3 month, 3 quarters and 3 calendars.
NB All other APX-ENDEX futures contracts are also available via Trading Gateway.
