France Power Pricing Trends | 23 May 2022
The electricity futures market rose last week. EDF and France’s Nuclear Safety Agency spoke out about the ongoing corrosion phenomenon. The main takeaway from their analysis report is that the oldest (and least powerful) plants are not affected by this technical problem & EDF has no plans to shut down additional reactors. But the latter is revising its expected 2022 nuclear production downwards (290 TWh against a historical average of 310 TWh). The weekly average price has risen from 304.22 €/MWh to 306.56 €/MWh for CAL 2023 and from 213.42 €/MWh to 217.71 €/MWh for CAL 2024.
