France Power Pricing Trends | 23 March 2022
Electricity market prices have been in a bearish stance since March 8th, with the CAL23 Baseload product falling below €200/MWh and closing the week at €191/MWh. This is due to a declining demand for electricity and gas (spring temperatures) and an increase in renewable energy production. On the other hand, the low availability of French nuclear power continues to drag on any fall in prices. Average weekly prices declined from 210.91 €/MWh to 194.20 €/MWh for CAL 2023 & from 123.52 €/MWh to 121.22 €/MWh for CAL 2024.

Average weekly prices rose from 75.86 €/MWh to 63.28 €/MWh for CAL 2023 & from 48.32 €/MWh to 43.65 €/MWh for CAL 2024.
