2017 07 21

From now on biomass prices of the Lithuanian Energy Exchange BALTPOOL will be quoted in the monthly publication Forest Energy Monitor prepared by the British company Hawkins Wright Ltd. for the international biomass market participants.

BALTPOOL Energy Exchange, which is part of the energy transmission and exchange group EPSO-G, will present Lithuanian wood chips and wood pellets price quotes for the publication Forest Energy Monitor every month.

‘It is one more step towards the implementation of our goal to become an international biomass trading centre of our region. From now on participants of the Lithuanian and neighbouring markets will be able to objectively compare the formed and forming prices in our region with the supply and demand trends of biomass in other countries, and the publicly announced wood chips and wood pellets price quotes will increase the interest of biomass producers and buyers in the trade on BALTPOOL Exchange’, the CEO of BALTPOOL Andrius Smaliukas states.

3 buyers and 16 sellers of biomass from Latvia, which successfully supply Lithuanian heat producers with fuel, have already registered on BALTPOOL Energy Exchange by now.

Its insights may have an impact on wood chips and wood pellets supply and demand both on the regional and international level.
