Germany as a study case for understanding capture prices for imports and exports
Thank you for sharing your analysis! In the day-ahead market, what happens when a generator’s bid is accepted, but then they can’t deliver? E.g. thermal generators have mechanical issues or the wind doesn’t blow as much as expected.
Very interesting and useful, thanks. It will be interesting to see what happened during a colder winter. The difficulty is that it is hard to take any long term lessons as (i) penetration of renewables is moving each year, and (ii) weather a season is unusually hot/cold has a strong influence on imports and exports, and (iii) we're still in the post-Ukraine war disruptions to the system. Do keep on doing this analysis, it is important information.
Thank you, I will read it and re-read it. There is a lot of useful information here. Everyone is going to have to get smarter about energy.
