Each week, we take a look at the week in flexibility trading that has just been, and a look at what's next. Enjoy our latest instalment.

Not only were we smashing the previous record of no coal usage (and it is worth remembering that it was only set last month).

Each week, we take a look at the week in flexibility trading that has just been, and a look at what's next. Enjoy our latest instalment. Last week kicked off with a lower than seasonal System Price of £48.65/MWh coupled with rising wind generation – a steady 3GW across the day before a peak of 5GW before bedtime, which helped meet the evening peak demand.
After a benign week at the end of March, the start of April last week delivered significant interest to the balancing mechanism. Tuesday gave us a morning with swings of up to £40 as the country got ready for work.
The Week in Flexibility: Solar up, wind down, coal closing and a negative weekend …. another unpredictable seven days.
Our biggest news of the week comes from this weekend’s events. In a first of a kind scenario, the System Price dropped to -£50 for settlement period 21 (about the time you were relaxing with the Sunday papers) and remained negative until 4:30 pm resulting in an average System Price of just 6.29 for the whole day.
