PHOTON Consulting’s Silicon Price Index Now Available on Bloomberg

PHOTON Consulting, a leading independent solar energy research firm and consultancy announced today that its proprietary Silicon Price Index is now available on the BLOOMBERG PROFESSIONAL® service. Bloomberg users worldwide can now access the world’s first non-tradable, U.S. Dollar denominated market index designed to measure global spot and contract prices for high-purity silicon, a critical feedstock for the solar power.

With access to research from PHOTON Consulting, users of the BLOOMBERG PROFESSIONAL service now have greater visibility into a global silicon market that has been historically challenged by a lack of pricing transparency in addition to other independent, qualitative, bottom-up research on the global solar sector. Bloomberg users can access the index via the function PHTN on the BLOOMBERG PROFESSIONAL service.

PHOTON Consulting’s Managing Director, Michael Rogol stated, “In such an unpredictable market for silicon, it is crucial for companies to have visibility for current spot market and contract prices. The silicon price index informs business decisions with the most extensive and thorough silicon price information.”
