Influences on premium heating wood pellet prices

February 5, 2018
By FutureMetrics

Feb. 5, 2018 - FutureMetrics has a new white paper on how weather and heating oil prices influence demand for premium wood pellets.

This brief white paper shows how weather (heating degree days) and the price of heating oil influence demand for wood pellets for heating. The paper also looks at actual pellet prices in several selected states.

FutureMetrics has been gathering detailed data on retail prices for heating pellets in selected northern New England states since July 2017. Each month FutureMetrics contacts between 130 and 160 retail outlets across the region to get prices for individual 40-pound bags and one-ton pallets of 40-pound bags for each brand of pellets that the retail outlet sells. Some of that data is used in this white paper.

The white paper is available for free and can be downloaded from the FutureMetrics website.
