Germany: Falling pellet prices in July 2020

22 July 2020 ` 16:10  

As expected, the second half of the year starts with low summer prices for wood pellets in Germany. The price for pellets in July currently stands at € 225.34 / t (for 6t purchases), which is 1.2% less than in June and 4.8% less than in July 2019.

“Pellets are the cheapest in summer. This is due to the good supply of raw materials and the lower demand from larger consumers. In addition, this year there will be a reduction in VAT for the climate-friendly fuels from 7 to 5 percent”, explains Martin Bentele, Managing Director of the German Energy Wood and Pellet Association (DEPV).

Regionally there were the following differences in July (purchase quantity 6 t): As in June, pellets are cheapest in southern Germany at € 222.65 / t. It is followed almost immediately by Central Germany with € 225.67 / t and Northern / Eastern Germany with € 225.89 / t.

Larger quantities (26 t) were traded in July 2020 on the following terms: South: 210.13 € / t, Central: € 211.45 / t, North / West: 210.51 € / t.
