Spalding, Lincolnshire, United Kingdom, 2006/12/14 - A new weekly market report for energy agriculture and bioenergy could help farmers, landowners and bioenergy users make significant savings over the course of a year.
The rapid pace of development in the UK biofuels and bioenergy industry has lead to a need for reliable information on price and market demand, which the reporting service, from Essex (UK) based Enagri Limited, provides.
The weekly updates form a part of the new Enagri Gold subscriber service. Other benefits including an in depth ‘knowledge base’ featuring information on energy crops, access to scientific and political reports and discounts on Enagri advertising and special reports. Talking to key players in the farming and renewables industries has shown that much of this information is either simply not available elsewhere, or not in an easy to understand format.
Although Enagri’s Market Information reports are already in circulation, the service will be officially launched at the LAMMA ’07 agricultural machinery show on 16 and 17 January 2007, by which time the databases will have been fully tested. By bringing together prices for a range of feedstocks and commodities, from rape meal to wood pellets, wheat to heating oil, and ethanol to soya oil, in a single report, Enagri Gold is the only ‘one-stop-shop’ for energy agriculture price information.
“We’ve built on our experience as the leading online source of information on energy agriculture and bioenergy to find out exactly what information the bioenergy industry wants,” explains Enagri’s editor, Richard Crowhurst. “By bringing this information together in a single report that’s delivered straight to your desktop we reduce the time it would take to find out this information from several hours to a few seconds.
“Not only that, but our online archive will provide a useful tool for supply chain decision makers whether they are buying, selling or contracting feedstocks or fuels. We even cover carbon trading so that subscribers can assess how the political impacts of the EU Emission Trading Scheme are influencing the bioenergy markets.”
As well as providing straight forward spot and future price data, each report includes a commentary on the major developments during the previous week so that the market information report adds to the information available in Enagri’s free online magazine and website. “There’s increasing interest in this data, not only from the farming and energy sectors, but from investors, consultants and other media,” adds Richard. He concedes that there are other market information services out there, but points out that most of them charge thousands of dollars for a limited market scope, such as world ethanol markets. “Enagri Gold covers all the main bioenergy areas for a fraction of the cost, making it available to everyone,” he points out.
A year’s subscription to Enagri Gold, which includes weekly market information reports and unlimited access to the Enagri knowledge base starts at just £150 + VAT. “We think that’s excellent value,” says Richard. “If you have oil fired central heating our information could save you that amount on a single delivery. The price compares well with similar database services which don’t have the market intelligence element of Enagri Gold, while we are much cheaper than most global commodity reports.”
All new subscribers are given the opportunity to try Enagri Gold free of charge and without risk for 4 weeks.
