Powernext held the twenty-third auction of Guarantees of Origin (GO), with the book opening on 11 August and order matching on 18 August, for May 2021 production GOs.
A total of 4 215 GWh of supported RES-E GOs were auctioned, which is significantly higher than the amount of GOs offered last month 3 320 GWh. All of the offered volumes were sold. Wind GOs represented about 62% of the total sold volume.
The Wind price decreased from 44 to 42 Eurocent/MWh. The Hydro and Solar price were auctioned at 45 Eurocent/MW and 46 Eurocent/MWh respectively, broadly similar to the prices witnessed in last month auctions. Thermal generation GOs prices increased from 36 Eurocent/MWh to 37 Eurocent/MWh. The stable prices in French auction results have followed the stable OTC GO market prices witnessed since last month's French auction. However, the OTC prices trade at a slight premium at this moment.
