LAST WEEK IN THE ENERGY MARKET – 11 March 16
The UK outlookShort term prices rose in the UK as the gas system fell short of supply for a few days and the short-term weather outlook looked cooler. With low wind output and three nuclear stations suffering outages, the price of electricity also increased. Longer dated contracts changed only slightly over the week, apart from electricity prices in 2018, which dropped 2 per cent.
Advice to purchasersSome volatility should not deter buyers at these levels. Especially those on long-term contracts. Forward gas prices have climbed 5-10 per cent from their mid-January levels, with electricity prices more or less matching that low.
