Wood Pellet Update - Spring 18

pellet update
Wood Pellet Update - Spring 18


This has been an unprecedented winter for the wood pellet market in the UK. Both Local and International markets have been hit by the perfect storm of increased demand and significant supply constraints.
 
Historically, by April we would expect to see some producers reducing their ex-gate pricing and for this price relief to be passed onto customers quite quickly. This year will be entirely different – in fact during the last week of March we had some of our supply prices increase by a further 10%!
 
We expect what price relief there to be this summer to be small – in the range of £5-£10 per tonne – and late, we would expect this to happen toward the end of May at the earliest. We do however expect most retailers stock positions to have come back to normality by mid-April. This coming winter our supply prices should be fairly consistent to what we experienced this year. Given the impact of the exchange rate on the market, we won’t understand until much later in the year the effect on pricing. However, we would expect prices to be comparable with what we saw this winter.

 

Firepower Pellets Bulk Discount


We've received tonnes of Firepower stock into our warehouse last week, and so we've removed the quantity cap on ALL our pellets, and introduced a £5/pallet saving on any order of 4 or more pallets of Firepower.
 
Firepower pellets still cost just £285 per pallet, and now includes an extra bag - 65 bags a pallet (975kg), saving you nearly £5/tonne.

Wood Pellet Shortage - Update 12 January

Wood Pellet Shortage - Update 12th January


We are still seeing large scale shortages across the market with most bagged suppliers providing 50% or less of their typical winter volumes.

The European fibre situation is still in a critical stage - The Latvian Government has recently declared a disaster in the forestry sector due to flooding. This means that producers in Latvia have been able to trigger the Force Majeure provisions in their supply contracts to avoid non-supply penalties. The Latvians are not the only producers who have been struggling with the conditions - indeed most of the Eastern European producers from Russia across the Baltics and Ukraine and Belarus have suffered from similar challenges. Fortunately the weather has turned in the last week, allowing most logging operations to recommence, however there is a significant delay from the time timber is felled until a pellet can be delivered to a consumer. We don't believe the production challenges will abate until at least the middle of February, by which time the pent-up demand in the market is likely to keep supply tight and prices high well into the start of April.

Despite the market challenges, White Horse Energy is bringing substantial quantities of product to the market (at present our weekly volumes are 30%-50% up on last year). Unfortunately to deliver these volumes our costs have shot up dramatically (by 30%-40%/tonne). At present we have managed to limit the impact on the consumer to an increase of just 16% over prior years. Our ambition is to secure as much supply as possible for our customers in order to ensure that everyone who needs pellets can get pellets. As soon as we are able, we will reduce our pricing in line with our supply costs. While it is very difficult to determine exactly when this will happen, we'd like to think we would see price reductions from the end of February.

Our long-term view remains that next winter we will see pellet prices somewhere below this winter's pricing, but above previous winters. Despite what has contributed to a perfect storm for the pellet market this year, wood pellets remain a very stable priced energy commodity relative to the alternatives - Electricity, Gas and Oil regularly see price swings far in excess of what the pellet market has seen this year.
