Wholesale power prices relatively low in Germany – analysis


Wholesale power prices in Germany were comparatively low in 2017, grid operator TenneT says in a press release. Especially during the winter months, average prices in Germany and the Netherlands were much lower than in France and Belgium, TenneT reports, based on an analysis of power prices in the countries where it is active. Monthly day-ahead wholesale prices in Germany and the Netherlands peaked at just over 50 euros per megawatt-hour (MWh); in France and Belgium they exceeded 70 euro/MWh.
