Forward prices for fossil fuels and biomass

Based on a methodology developed by Ea Energy Analyses, the Danish Energy Agency utilises energy commodity forwards and future prices in combination with long-term price forecasts to arrive at its annual fuel price projections.


To assist in the selection process, Ea afforded the Danish Energy Agency with a general overview of what forwards are and how they are utilised. Ea also provided a more specific understanding of the various forward prices that are available for fossil and biomass fuels, which are the most relevant from a Danish perspective, and how they can be utilised in the price updates of the Danish Energy Agency.

The project was carried out from October 2017 to November 2017.
