German Plant Performance Summary – January 2017

Aurora’s power plant performance summary provides a monthly snapshot of financial and operating performance for individual plants on the German electricity grid. We collate, clean, and process the data so that it is readily digestible and error-free.

Highlights of the January report include:

  1. Compared to 12/2016, the average Phelix power price rose by 17 EUR/MWh (+40%), thereby increasing capture prices across all technologies
  2. High prices were mainly a result of lower generation from renewables in the second half of January, as well as bad weather across Europe, which brought more coal and (to a lesser extent) gas plants online
  3. Nuclear power plants Gundremmingen C, Emsland and Isar 2 were offline for fuel rod changes, while Phillipsburg 2 remains offline for extensive maintenance.
