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
