We are pleased to present our GB wholesale market summary for April.
Highlights from the report include:
- April saw power prices rise to £67/MWh driven by increased gas and carbon prices
- Monthly transmission power demand in April decreased to 21 TWh due to warmer temperatures
- Despite lower demand and higher gas and carbon prices, thermal generation in April increased to 11 TWh due to lower renewables output
- Higher thermal generation thus resulted in a rise in emissions to 5 MtCO2e
