Photovoltaic energy continues to set records in Europe this spring

In the second week of May, prices in the main European electricity markets remained at similar levels to those of previous weeks, although the weekly average rose in most of them. The weekly average price fell only in the French market, which registered the lowest value, thus breaking the Iberian markets streak of the lowest prices. Photovoltaic energy reached all time records in Germany, Spain, France and Portugal. Wind energy production fell and gas and CO2 prices rose.

Iberian market prices remain the lowest despite being the only market in Europe with price rises in the first week of May

In the week of April 29, prices in the main European electricity markets fell compared to the previous week. The exception was the Iberian MIBEL market, where prices rose, although they were the lowest again for the thirteenth consecutive week. Most markets registered negative hourly prices. Portugal and Italy broke the historical records for solar photovoltaic energy production over the weekend. Also in Italy, wind energy reached a record for a May month on the 3rd. Electricity demand fell in all markets.

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.

The energy markets observatories are available on the AleaSoft Energy Forecasting website, which allow analysing the evolution of the main European electricity markets in recent weeks. This tool includes hourly, daily and weekly graphs in which the information is updated daily.
