Solar Auction

Solar REC Auctions

The recent growing interest in earth-friendly energy has also driven a secondary market used to promote the use of these energy sources beyond what the normal market would otherwise support. Part of these secondary markets are the transfer of Solar Energy Credits, which companies can use to offset the cost of consuming carbon-releasing energy sources.

As this burgeoning market begins to take shape, the uncertainties far outweigh the certainties, and thus produce a market where those who buy and sell the credits can not rely on a traditional broker model to act as the middleman.

Commodity Auction

Commodity Auctions

The market has well established prices for commodities like gold and silver, but how do you properly price commodities that don't trade very often? How does a company determine the price to buy and the price to sell? The answer is commodity auctions. If you're trying to sell items that are tough to price like rare earth elements, diamonds, or minerals, an auction is the best way to bring together buyers and sellers under an industry-best set of rules, construct the demand curve properly through software driven means, and ensure that the commodities are traded at a true, efficient market-driven price. Our software will help you price the hard-to-price items you need to sell.
