What’s driving power prices?​

As the Green Energy Transition progresses globally, power prices are increasingly influenced by local weather and climate trends, as well as by national policies, the world’s macro-economic outlook and geopolitics. 

With renewables – especially wind and solar power – covering a rising share of power demand in several countries, exact and frequent weather forecasts and corresponding predictions for renewable power generation and curtailments are critical to understanding and predicting day-to-day power price development. In hydro dominated countries, the hydrological situation and expectations for its near-term development are strong additional drivers.​

Nevertheless, with fossil fuels like lignite, coal and gas still covering a large load share, their prices and short run marginal costs (SRMCs) have a major impact on power prices. As these energy commodities are subject to international trade, their costs and security of supply are influenced by the geopolitical situation as well as global supply and demand.​

Nuclear power generation is also playing an important role in the global energy markets. Planned and unplanned outages of this generation can drastically influence power prices, as it leaves a larger share of the demand to be covered by more expensive sources.​

Last, but not least, daily, weekly and yearly variations in power demand strongly affect prices. As such, the ability to understand and predict the interdependence of demand on weather, temperature and seasonal cycles remains of outmost importance. ​
