We are pleased to present our GB Wholesale Market Summary for January.

​​​​​​​Highlights from the report include:

  • The average power price in January was £185.3 /MWh, an 18% decrease since December 2021
  • The month-on-month decrease in power prices, was primarily driven by the 27% fall in gas prices, offsetting upward pressure from higher carbon prices and transmission demand
  • The UK-ETS traded at an average of £77/tCO2 in January, a 3% increase relative to December
  • Average CCGT load factors remained similar at 41% from December to January, as did those for offshore wind, at ~50%
  • Consequently, domestic power sector emissions stayed similar, totalling 4.7 MtCO2e
