Europe’s power market was in a precarious position entering 2023, and in the end, it was good fortune – the avoidance of a harsh winter – that put a halt to the surging prices of 2022. The downward trend in commodity prices – the TTF gas price dropped 43% between January and December – took much of the sting out of wholesale power prices. Power demand fell by 3% in 2023, partially reflecting the success of national load reduction strategies, but also due to demand response to continued high retail prices. On the supply-side, strong hydro conditions and growth in wind and solar output eased reliance on gas (-18%) and coal (-27%). In this review of power volumes and prices in 2023, a development of our usual monthly volumes and price tracker, we examine Europe’s largest electricity markets, exploring key influences, events and market dynamics in the past 12 months.
