Mehr erneuerbare & weniger fossile Stromerzeugung, eine gesunkene Stromnachfrage & temporär günstigere Erdgasverstromung drücken den Strompreis im Januar im Mittel um ca. 30% bzw. 50€/MWh (=5 ct/kWh) gegenüber dem Vorjahresmonat. 3/3 pic.twitter.com/bUhBtckz92

Kosten für Gasverstromung fallen um 22% ggü. Jan/22 aufgrund entspannter Versorgungslage ➡️ milde Witterung (+0,9°C), volle Gasspeicher (+30%) & Verbrauchsrückgang reduzieren Gas- & Kohlenachfrage. Wird der Februar kalt, könnten fossile Energiepreise schnell wieder steigen. 2/3 pic.twitter.com/46MGgpOGEw
