Electricity prices in Germany fell towards €60/MWh, their lowest level since January 14th, because of a surge in wind power generation and an expected decline in electricity consumption amid warmer weather. Additionally, Germany’s government has announced support for electricity, gas, and heating prices for private households and companies in 2023, following last year’s sharp rise in energy costs. The gas price cap allows industrial customers to receive 70% of their natural gas consumption at a guaranteed 7 cents per kilowatt hour. For heat consumption, the price is capped at 7.5 cents per kilowatt hour, also for 70% of consumption. Meanwhile, the electricity price for households and small businesses is capped at 40 cents per kilowatt hour for 80% of actual consumption. Electricity prices in Europe’s largest economy hit an all-time high of €700/MWh last August as the region met the worst energy crisis in decades and concerns about Russian gas supplies mounted.
