Renewables records have been broken once again, thanks to a windy start to 2020.

According to EnAppSys, renewables generated 35.4TWh of power in the first quarter of 2020 which is 44% of total UK generation. This comes amid news that global carbon emissions from the fossil fuel industry could fall by a record 2.5bn tonnes this year as a result of Coronavirus.


Day-ahead gas currently stands at 16.30ppt whilst year-ahead is 33.10ppt. The May-20 contract is at 17.36ppt whilst Q3 is at 20.87ppt.
