SSX has been featured on:
Since its incorporation in 2010, Singapore Solar Exchange (SSX) has connected the global PV industry through spot physical trades.
From 2010, when we pioneered spot trading in PV materials, until 2022, SSX traded polysilicon, wafers, cells and modules with its network of buyers and sellers in the spot market. Based on these trades, SSX developed a solar price index that was sold in 2022 to OPIS, a Dow Jones company.
Amid supply chain issues resulting in higher price volatility across the solar value chain, SSX expanded its business scope to solar swaps brokerage. Solar swaps (financial derivatives contracts) will immensely help to de-risk solar projects.
