The EU #electricity market experienced a weekend filled with unexpected twists & turns. Low demand, still 9-10% below pre-crisis levels, combined with strong solar production, created a surplus of #energy in most countries, pushing wholesale market prices into negative territory. Image
On Sunday, May 28th, the price on the EpexSpot exchange reached €400/MWh in the Netherlands.
This surplus affected the Day-Ahead exchanges, Intraday markets, and balancing mechanism, highlighting the complexity of managing transmission system surpluses.
At Kpler Power, we forecast demand, renewable generation and market prices, to better anticipate the supply-demand balance in the short, medium and long term.

🧵| G7 leaders will meeting in Hiroshima🇯🇵 next week & they need to talk #grids⚡️

According to @Reuters and @e3g, to scale up electricity grids & storage infrastructure to meet our #renewables goals by the mid-2030s, policymakers must turn targets into a clear "grid agenda". Image
2/3 | Grid interconnection is a strength in the EU and we must continue working together to develop clear outlines for new #electricity infrastructure, notes @FactFisching.

3/3 | We also welcome @johnpodesta's perspective: legislation to speed up grid deployment should “not push communities out of the decision-making process, but bring them in earlier”

India's #electricity grid set several record highs Tuesday - there's a heatwave going on.
Per @GridIndia1's MERIT data (via @CSEP_Org's
1) Record demand met: ~216 GW
2) Record #coal generation: over 166 GW

📢 3 issues going forward...(short 🧵) Image
1) This isn't over - typical annual peaks are in June(ish).
2) The peak was not AM any more, rather, closer to 3 PM
3) Coal's output has been steady near max, with long durations of highs.

These 3 pts have implications as expanded below.
1) It will take planning, luck, AND ₹ (or $ = forex!) to prevent blackouts.

Short-term issue is fuel - gas prices ⬆️ & coal imports also ⬆️. Railways is stretched so coal stockpiles at plants are ⬇️.

@IMDWeather forecasts decent monsoon (96%), but the issue is also the timing.

The #BEST, which provides public transport & supplies power to #Mumbai is an undertaking of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). However, in the 20th century, the #BMC had actually boycotted the use of the BEST's electricity. Thread:

The Bombay Gas Co Ltd was launched in 1862 to provide street lighting & supply coal gas to households in #Mumbai. It however folded up over a century later.

Looks like @FERC will put everything on the table regarding @pjminterconnect 's capacity market, and it's hard to not see this as a proxy trial for capacity markets in general.

So, where do we go on resource adequacy?
#energytwitter #powergrid #electricity
Can market-based resource adequacy survive? #WinterStorm Uri discredited energy market only solutions, but the capacity market victory lap was hardly over when Elliott less dramatically called capacity markets into question.
With our economic theories looking very shaky, do we have to retreat back to administrative planning?

The @EU_Commission's consultation on #electricity market design closes tonight.

Here's our pan-EU team's analysis of the challenges ahead as the Commission moves to propose reform.

Five potential crunch points:

1) #renewables revenue risk: support CfDs or PPAs? (1/) Image
2) Role of government: prioritise consumer protection or investor confidence? 

3) Consumer tariffs: emphasise importance of hedging or demand flexibility? 

4) Allocation of resources: support many consumers or target certain groups? (2/)
5) Role of utilities: regulate retail pricing or better integrate futures markets? 

See which way we think each debate will lean above. (3/3)

This AM I entered the uranium sector in a small manner. Been watching the market and learning for some time now. I bought pure play physical uranium trust units. Not explorers, not producers. I may or may not buy producers, possibly explorers.
Given the spot price of uranium is a secret until the last day of each month and the longitudinal spot price suffered immensely post-Fukushima now is a moment to act. Others, bolder, perhaps much smarter, moves a year or so ago.👏
There have been some instantial minor see-saws for the last decade, but the market has gradually strengthened and a number of factors are bringing nuclear power into the public psyche.

At first glance, Nov #CPI was somewhat better-than-expected report (headline MoM slightly lower than expectations -0.1% vs 0%) and mostly in line (YoY headline, as well as MoM&YoY core).

But in the details #inflation is much weaker than gets recognized.

A thread.

Unadjusted headline #CPI is down for the 2nd M in a row with -0.31% which is the lowest print since Apr 2020 (-0.67%).

In the last 8 yrs there were only 2M with materially lower prints (Apr 2020 and Jan 2015 -0.47%)!

2/17 Image
Unadjusted headline in Dec 2022 (-0.31%) is the 6th lowest in 8 yrs but 3 of these prints were almost identical (Dec 2018 -0.32%, Nov 2018 -0.33% and Dec 2015 -0.34%).

In Apr 2020 the economy was on forced lockdown, and in 2015/late 2018 #deflation was a problem.
