Energy Census RTFC and Biofuel Price Assessments

Energy Census is an independent price reporting agency (PRA) that offers an impartial, robust price reporting service dedicated to providing pricing transparency in the biofuel and related certificate markets.

Our price assessments are intended to be used as price references for negotiation, and in physical spot and term contracts, as well as the settlement price for financial derivatives.

They can also be used for the valuation of physical inventories, mark-to-market valuations of financial instruments, and the creation of associated derived data.

For full details of how we assess, please refer to our methodology.

Subscribers can also download the data, as well as annotate and download the graph as an image.
