Advantages of the ARGUS GOO price assessment

Markets for GOOs are extremely opaque, with liquidity spread across a variety of trading venues.

Argus captures best bids and offers across a range of platforms on a daily basis, which, combined with confirmed deals done bilaterally and via brokers, allows for robust and fair daily assessments. Argus also provides weekly market commentary on price moves for a wider range of GOO products, and publishes specifications of confirmed deals.

Users of the ARGUS GOO price assessment

Renewable generators, suppliers or corporate customers looking to increase their green portfolio, intermediary traders, utilities and financial investors can rely on Argus' independent price assessments when buying and selling GOOs. The daily assessment can be used as an independent floating price settlement for long-term contracts, including as a clause in long-term power purchase agreements.
