According to the announcement, the contract will help producers to reduce price volatility of the material used in a wide range of energy transition applications including solar, EVs and ICT. 

Silicon futures will be the first product to list on the Guangzhou Futures Exchange, which was set up last year and aims to focus on new energy materials such as lithium, platinum, palladium and rare earth elements.
