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:
Compared to 12/2016, the average Phelix power price rose by 17 EUR/MWh (+40%), thereby increasing capture prices across all technologies
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
Nuclear power plants Gundremmingen C, Emsland and Isar 2 were offline for fuel rod changes, while Phillipsburg 2 remains offline for extensive maintenance.
