Consistently elevated prices as a segue into EUAA National Conference this week


Worth including this snapshot from ez2view of the 13:05 dispatch interval highlighting electricity spot prices elevated across all regions of the NEM for a number of reasons (including coal (and other) unit outages, and the high spot gas prices shown):

The 13:05 dispatch interval was randomly chosen today – but looks similar to a large number of other dispatch interval that’s been occurring in recent weeks (it will be interesting to look at the details when I run the update on this annual analysis of Q2 prices at the end of this Q2 2022).

This week the Energy Users Association of Australia (EUAA) is holding its National Conference 2022 in Melbourne – it will feel a bit strange, being at the first in-person EUAA event since 2019, but the topic for conversation is sure to include discussion about these patterns as a hurdle on the road to the energy transition.
