European electricity market prices continued to fall due to less cold temperatures

In the fourth week of January, European electricity market prices continued the downward trend that started in the previous week. Less cold temperatures drove down demand while gas and CO2 prices continued to fall. The exception was the Iberian market, where the decline in wind energy production led prices to rise above those of the previous week. Weekly photovoltaic energy production in Germany and Spain was the highest for a January month.

European electricity market prices change trend after starting the year on the rise

In the week of January 15, prices in the main European electricity markets decreased compared to the previous week. This represented a reversal of the upward trend registered in most markets over the last two weeks. Gas and CO2 prices continued the downward trend of recent weeks and wind energy production increased in general. In the week of January 22, prices will continue to fall in EPEX SPOT, but will rise in MIBEL, IPEX and N2EX.

Demand and prices in European electricity markets rise due to low temperatures

In the second week of January, most European electricity markets registered an increase in prices compared to the previous week. The increase in demand after the beginning of the year, in a week with colder temperatures than the first week of the year, favored this behavior. Solar energy production rose in several markets, but wind energy production fell in almost all markets. On January 12, CO2 futures reached the lowest value since March 8, 2022.

European electricity market prices start 2024 up, pushed by demand, while wind energy causes declines in the south

In the first week of 2024, increased demand drove prices higher in most European electricity markets. However, in Spain, Portugal and Italy, prices decreased due to a significant increase in wind energy production. On January 2, France reached a daily wind energy production record of 402 GWh. On that day, Front-Month futures of TTF gas in ICE marked the lowest settlement price since the first half of August 2023, reaching €30.57/MWh.

Electricity market prices return to 2021 levels in 2023 thanks to falling gas prices and the rise in renewable energy

In 2023, annual electricity market prices fell to levels similar to those of 2021, being mostly below €100/MWh. The drop in gas prices, together with the reduction in demand and the increase in renewable energy generation with respect to 2022, led to the decrease in electricity market prices. During 2023, installed solar and wind energy capacity increased in most markets, thus favoring the increase in production using these technologies.

Renewable energy fails in Southern Europe in the last week of the year and causes prices to rise despite falling demand

The last week of the year 2023 registered the expected drop in demand due to the Christmas holiday period. Increased solar energy production in countries such as Germany and France contributed to price declines in the EPEX SPOT market. However, wind and solar energy production fell in Italy and the Iberian Peninsula, contributing to price increases in these markets. Gas prices continued their downward trend, approaching €30/MWh.

At AleaSoft Energy Forecasting we are experts in statistical models and forecasts related to the European energy markets, renewable energy, projects financing and PPA, and we hold workshops on topics of interest, with demonstrations and applications of techniques and tools for the professionals of the energy sector.
These are the latest workshops held:
  • Short term forecasting for agents that operate in the spot and futures markets. Request recording >>
  • Mid-term forecasting with the stochasticity distributions for agents operating in the spot and futures markets. Request recording >>
  • Alea Energy DataBase (AleaApp) for the compilation, visualisation and analysis of data related to the energy markets. Request recording >>

At AleaSoft Energy Forecasting, studies, analyses and reports are carried out for hybrid systems, mainly of solar photovoltaic energy with batteries, but also of solar photovoltaic energy with wind energy, and of the three, solar photovoltaic energy, wind energy and batteries. The objective of these studies, analyses and reports is defining strategies for optimising the operation of hybrid systems to maximise their income. In addition, the estimation of future income is made taking into account the defined strategy and long term hourly market price forecasts.

At AleaSoft Energy Forecasting, the Alea Energy DataBase (AleaApp) was developed, an online platform which compiles the data from the energy markets and the macroeconomic data from the main European markets, helping and facilitating the digitalisation of the companies. In this tool it is possible to visualise and analyse the data through comparative graphs of variables, calculation of the moving average, changes in the temporality of the series, among others.
