On a positive note, hydropower production is increasing thanks to the high rainfall this autumn. The weekly average price increased from 401.26 €/MWh to 421.44 €/MWh for CAL 2023 and grew from 273.64 €/MWh to 290.95 €/MWh for CAL 2024.

The weekly average price increases from 111.62 €/MWh to 118.85 €/MWh for CAL 2023 and from 92.17 €/MWh to 93.35 €/MWh for CAL 2024.

The weekly average price of Brent crude oil dropped from 88.10 €/bbl to 83.14 €/bbl.
