January 18th 2017- The price of electricity in the N2EX market has risen substantially in recent months after remaining at low levels during the first half of 2016. The main cause is the high dependence on gas for electricity generation in the United Kingdom. The British government has launched its “decarbonisation” plans to replace coal-fired production with gas in the energy mix. In addition, the shutdown of nuclear power plants in France during the last months of 2016 has also pushed up the price.
