An essential component of any system of renewable energy production is the feedstock availability and reliability. A key to success in this component of the operation is knowing the essentials of forward contracting and hedging of the biomass feedstock so that material is continually available and ready to use. Contracting for feedstock, and especially feedstock hedging should be done by professionals with knowledge of market prices and evaluation data from which to predict future pricing with some degree of reliability. Knowledgeable pricing and hedging will consider market conditions and should generate the best available outcome. The development of contracts for feedstock supply requires expertise and a history of strong relationships with feedstock suppliers.
