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

Highlights from the report include:

  • Power prices in June rose to £77/MWh driven by the continued increase in gas and carbon prices, a 6% increase from May
  • The UK-ETS traded at an average of £46/tCO2 in June, converging with the EU-ETS as generators unravelled EU-ETS hedges to purchase UK-ETS allowances
  • Driven by a combination of lower demand and higher gas and carbon prices, thermal generation in June fell to 8 TWh, a 16% decrease from May
  • Consequently, emissions fell to 3 MtCO2e with grid intensity of 201 gCO2e/kWh
  • Lower wind speeds saw wind load factors fall by 17% on average, relative to May
