France Power Pricing Trends | 24 August 2021
A new all-time high was reached on Tuesday with a 2022 price of €87.20/MWh. High gas prices have induced higher coalfired electricity generation, supporting both the CO2 and electricity markets. Last Thursday, expectations of a tapering by the Fed caused the markets to react, including the electricity market, when nothing happened, with a drop of nearly 5 €/MWh. The average weekly price moved from 83.89 €/MWh to 84.96 €/MWh for CAL 2022 and 68.17 €/MWh to 68.34 €/MWh for CAL 2023.

Average weekly prices surged from 31.64 €/MWh to 31.95 €/MWh for CAL 2022 and from 22.20 €/MWh to 22.51 €/MWh for CAL 2023.
