Last week, electricity prices fell in all commercial areas of the “North Pool”.
The price of the “Nord Pool” system decreased by 51% to an average of 154.51 Euros per MWh.
The main reason for the decrease in electricity prices in the “North Pool” area was 10% lower electricity demand due to longer holidays. In addition, the 8% increase in the development of wind power plants in the “North Pool” region, the increase in the availability of nuclear power plants and the decrease in energy product prices were reflected in electricity prices. Average electricity prices for the Baltic week were affected by 98% higher energy flows from Sweden’s SE4 business zone, as Sweden’s Oskarshamn third reactor was up and running, while flow from Finland was 2% lower than the previous week.
