Short term

From Monday to Friday, there was relatively little wind in Northwest Europe, pushing up the residual demand. At the same time, we see the price spread between France on one hand, and the Netherlands and Germany on the other, decreasing significantly: the average spread between the Netherlands and France was over 20 euros last week. Throughout 2024, it hadn’t exceeded 12 euros. France has been experiencing above-average temperatures in the last 2 weeks, keeping power demand relatively low. Additionally, there are enough nuclear power plants available to supply power. France exports a lot of electricity to neighboring countries but continues to import electricity from Spain. During the weekend The Netherlands generated relatively large volumes of renewable power, which was being exported via Belgium to France. On Saturday, prices remained equal to 0 €/MWh for 8 consecutive hours in The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, and France.
