Power Market Update: What to expect next

By Market Insight Team | Posted April 16, 2020

The wholesale energy complex is ever-evolving and fundamentals have changed drastically over the past few years.

Here at EDF, we're committed to providing customers with as much information as possible on all aspects of their energy consumption. Not least of all now through these uncertain times that are influencing the wholesale price of power.

On 26 March 2020, EDF’s Energy Trader James Chaplin took a break from trading to join the virtual Energy Live News Consultancy Conference and share insight into the impact on the commodity markets. James covered the key factors that have influenced power and gas prices over the past year, the current impacts of COVID-19 and the key risks ahead.

Join James again at his  free bi-monthly webinars to keep on top of the ever changing prices.
