The European Community Exchange Euronext will set in later this year its first futures contract with a focus on the energy sector. There would be a demand for a future as renewable energy for heating on wood pellets, as the Paris Bourse today to the press.
The contract is to be introduced in the autumn and is specified with a physical delivery, so that producers and traders in the European Union, where 80% of the world production of wood pellets takes place, to complete their price hedging transactions. This is the first futures contract of Euronext, which relates exclusively to renewable energy, says Ulrich von Fürstenberg, product manager of the Exchange.
