📰 Energy Market News

Editorial: A welcome drop in energy cost

Electricity prices in Greece returned to levels not seen since the start of the energy crisis, since the drop of natural gas prices and competition in the retail market allowed for 10-11 cents/KWh in February. This is a much-needed development for consumers, who have been troubled by high costs in the last three years, but also for the government that had to shoulder a large political cost.

The question on everyone's lips now is what is going to happen in the near future. In February the price of TTF dropped further to 24 euros/MWh. However, it is showing signs of reaching a bottom and finding support.

Europe is now more dependent on LNG imports and the global market is slightly in deficit this year. Therefore, the EU will continue to worry about potential supply discruptions or geopolitical clashes. After 2024 new production in places such as the U.S. will help significantly.

At the same time, it is very positive that European gas storage is expected to close the winter season above 50%, therefore fewer quantities will be needed during the summer months.
