As biopower and wood pellet industry markets grow and mature, the increased competition for wood pellets and chips will provide opportunities for suppliers of these materials around the globe. Biopower producers require a secure and consistent supply of both pellets and chips, sometimes from multiple suppliers in multiple geographies. As a result, they also require strong procurement strategies, supply chain risk assessments, cost analyses, supplier diligence processes and contract negotiation strategies.
The long-term success of a bioenergy project hinges on decisions at every stage of the project lifecycle. It is therefore essential for project developers to understand the complexities and nuances of the US wood supply chain and market trends.
