Spot prices have moved down with the help of increased wind production and nuclear availability; temperatures have also been forecast to be slightly higher than last week which has also had an effect on prices.
Spot prices received support from lower wind availability and numerous outages at coal-fired power plants in Germany. Solar generation was also low but is expected to improve today and wind production should go up next week.
The power market has strengthened over the weekend with scheduled maintenance at numerous plants an influencing factor, while the UK gas system was stable on Friday and resulted in an increase in storage injections.
