Wood Pellet Industry Analytics

Our bioenergy project support services have helped both producers and consumers in the global wood pellet industry realize success at various stages of the project development lifecycle.

Market Analysis and Site Ranking

A market analysis of potential sites allows them to be ranked from most favorable to least favorable. A site scoring process that allows for suitability criteria can be weighted, thereby recognizing that some criteria are more important than others.

Project Development & Finance

During the finance phase of a project, developers use Forest2Market studies to demonstrate project quality for investors and commercial lenders. These studies not only help to determine site suitability, but they are also used to verify the positive economic impacts of a project for grants and permits.

Project Execution

Forest2Market bioenergy project execution services, which include our delivered price benchmark, are used by project developers and manufacturers to understand feedstock costs in their local markets, to compare their costs to those of their peers, and to optimize their supply chains and reduce costs.

Supply Chain Consulting

Developers seeking to ensure long-term supply and minimize their risks depend on Forest2Market to compose procurement strategies and price indexes. We work with developers to:

  • Identify qualified suppliers and formulate contract structure strategies to ensure supply
  • Develop supply and off-take agreement indexes to minimize price risk

Renewable Energy Analytics

Renewable energy facilities currently exist across the US and large scale coal-to-biomass conversions are underway in Europe. In addition, many Asian markets have historically relied on coal and are beginning to transition to biomass as an energy source. They are modifying their feedstock portfolios to include global biomass producers in their renewable energy plans.

Project Due Diligence

A Forest2Market bankable due diligence study provides project developers with the data they need to demonstrate project quality for investors and commercial lenders. These studies provide an independent, third-party assessment of supply and demand factors, as well as feedstock sustainability and price.

Supplier Due Diligence

Forest2Market offers a range of advisement services and analytics to assist biopower producers in securing fuel supply. These services include the development of a fuel portfolio:

  • Identification of lowest cost regions of supply for various fuel types, as well as high quality prospective suppliers in those regions
  • Assistance in commercial discussions and contract negotiations
Procurement Strategy Review

Forest2Market provides an annual analysis of a consuming facility’s biomass procurement performance against the broader market and provides procurement strategy recommendations, including data-backed strategies for optimizing its supply chain.

Biofuel and Biochemical Analytics

The success of a biofuel or biochemical project that utilizes wood feedstocks hinges on business decisions made in the critical early stages of project development. With Forest2Market early-stage studies, project developers have the tools they need to educate their business partners and achieve project success.

Strategic Consulting and Due Diligence

Forest2Market works closely with each client to build customized studies and consulting engagements that answer market and supply characteristics questions and assist with site selection decisions. Due diligence studies provide project developers with the data and analysis they need to demonstrate project quality for investors and commercial lenders. 

Economic Impact Analysis

Forest2Market reports provide insight into the direct economic benefits of each project to timberland owners, wood dealers and logging companies, as well as the indirect and induced effects of the project on the local economy. Our clients have successfully used these reports to secure state/local project permits and project infrastructure grants.

Cost Indexing & Sustainability Reviews

Forest2Market provides defensible wood feedstock price indexes that account for the uniqueness of the biomass supply chain. Forest2Market’s Delivered Price Benchmark provides a means for wood-to-energy supply chain participants to compare feedstock procurement efficiency and costs, and an annual sustainability review ensures the sustainability of supply needs to be reconfirmed throughout the life of the project.
