US market helps EDPR outcome Spanish problems

UNITED STATES: A 5% rise in average US selling prices and 13% growth in European electricity generation offset negative developments in Spain to allow EDPR to post positive third-quarter results.

Higher US prices, resulting from new, more advantageous PPAs and the knock-on effect of the recovery in wholsesale gas prices, outweighed a 2% drop in average European prices.

This drop was largely caused mainly by Spanish regulatory changes to push the overall average selling price up 1% to EUR 64.5/MWh.

A 5% rise in average US selling prices and 13% growth in European electricity generation offset negative developments in Spain to allow EDPR to post positive third-quarter results.

More wind resource in Iberia  and 33% more installed capacity in EDPR’s other EU markets was behind the growth in European electricity generation.
