Renewable energy placed MIBEL at the lowest prices in Europe in the fourth week of November

In the fourth week of November, MIBEL registered the lowest prices among the main European markets thanks to solar and wind energy. In the other markets, prices were in general higher than in the previous week, although wind energy helped to push prices below €100/MWh over the weekend. Photovoltaic energy registered the production record for a November in the Iberian Peninsula and wind energy in Germany. CO2 futures reached the lowest price in the last year.

Boosting renewable energies in Spain means strategic opportunities for energy storage companies

Energy storage is one of the vectors of the energy transition and a necessary partner in the deployment of renewable energies. In Spain, the regulatory framework for storage is expected to be approved in 2024 or early 2025. This situation represents a window of opportunity for companies that want to lead the sector or find a place throughout the value and supply chain.

Records of photovoltaic energy production for a month of November in Spain and wind energy production in Germany

During the weekdays of the third week of November, prices in the main European electricity markets registered an upward trend. However, over the weekend, the combination of lower demand and high renewable energy production helped to bring prices down. On the 19th, Spain registered the solar photovoltaic energy production record for a month of November and in Germany, on the 14th, wind energy production was the highest for a month of November.

Revenue stacking: The solution for battery viability

Energy storage capacity is an essential part of the energy transition. According to AEPIBAL, revenue stacking is the key to battery profitability, diversifying revenues through price arbitrage, ancillary services and capacity payments. Although the funding gap currently represents 25%-30% of the necessary revenues, the capacity market in Spain is expected to fill the gap that is currently covered by subsidies.

Falling wind energy production in the second week of November leads to a price recovery in European electricity markets

In the second week of November, electricity market prices recovered from the previous week. For the third consecutive week, MIBEL was the market with the lowest weekly average. The increase in demand and the fall in wind energy production after the high levels at the end of October and the beginning of November favored the rise in prices. Even so, on November 6, the German market reached the highest wind energy production since mid-March

Record wind energy production in Italy and Portugal and downward trend in European electricity market prices

In the first week of November, wind energy production reached a weekly record in Italy and in Portugal it was the second highest in history. In addition, almost all markets registered an increase in production using this technology. This, together with lower demand and lower gas prices, contributed to a downward trend in European electricity market prices. From October 26 to November 6, the MIBEL market had the lowest prices, with the exception of the 31st.
