On Friday morning, March 27 2015, Dutch TSO Tennet experienced technical issues at 380 kV substation near Diemen power plant which caused power outages in parts of the Northern Netherlands, Amsterdam and Schiphol Airport. According to Tennet, the problem with the grid was detected at 9:37...
Last week, Canadian crude storage built by 2.6 mmbbls, with inventories at both Edmonton and Hardisty increasing by more than 1 mmbbls. Inventories at Edmonton reached the highest level measured since Genscape began monitoring the location in 2010. Though the inventories are at a record level, the...
In recent days, solar generation in California has been playing a large role in driving exceptionally weak midday pricing across southern portions of the state. While this behavior is not abnormal during strong solar generation, the magnitude of the recent weak prices has been quite jarring.
Recent steam cracker outages in Texas have provided some support to spot ethylene prices, but the downside price risk once these crackers return is significant given the lack of exit capacity from Texas to Louisiana.
After a relatively quiet winter, a slew of ethylene cracker outages has popped up in...
Unlike the eastern U.S. power markets, where there are organized entities such as PJM, MISO, NYISO and ISO NE, the western U.S. power interconnect has vast areas with relatively little market structure or regulatory oversight. In the west, there are the California Independent System...

On Friday, March 20, 2015 a solar eclipse will pass over Europe between 8:40AM and 12:50PM CET. The reduction of solar radiation during these hours is expected to have an impact given the 89 GWs of solar-powered generation capacity installed across the continent. The total impact to the continental European...
In January 2015, ENTSO-E launched a new transparency platform with data being made available for hourly German power demand that is subtly different from the data that (until recently) was made available via the old ENSTO-E platform. In the chart below we illustrate the differences between the...
