The price of electricity in times of Covid-19
In 2020, the average wholesale electricity price was significantly lower than in 2019. Three factors dampened prices: lower fuel costs, lower electricity demand and more electricity from renewable sources. In the analysis "The Electricity Price in Times of Covid-19", Dr. Simon Schulte, Fabian Arnold and Konstantin Gruber examine how the wholesale electricity price developed in 2020, what factors influenced its development, and what role the Covid-19 pandemic has played.
