Analysis Bullish UK NBP gas prices make coal-fired power

The Q1 2019 spark spread- the gross margin of power produced at a 50% efficient gas-fired power plant after accounting for the cost of gas, CPS, and emissions- was nearly flat day-on-day at GBP5.71/MWh. Data from collected from National Grid show that coal-fired power generation from September 1-4 has been around 67.91 GWh so far.

TRADITIONAL COAL-FIRED POWER GENERATION TECHNOLOGY

TRADITIONAL COAL-FIRED POWER GENERATION TECHNOLOGY. The traditional method of producing electricity from coal is to burn the fuel in air and capture the heat released during the combustion in a boiler where it is used to raise steam, the latter driving a steam turbine generator.
