Volatile carbon market pushes energy prices up slightly
Last week saw electricity prices increase due to a volatile carbon market and EDF Energy announcing that the Hunterston B8 reactor outage would persist until the 30 May. Gas prices have remained stable, as supply-demand levels are currently higher than the equivalent 2017/18 levels, which have offset the rising carbon prices. Carbon market volatility may play a more significant role over forthcoming weeks and the impact of direction in the oil markets cannot be ignored.
