Updated Weekly Reporting:Wk 6
The data sheets behind the NEW: Weekly Report, have been refreshed, so the reporting is now showing for the week of February 8-14.
The demand trend down continued, with the average Ontario Demand dropping 615MW against the same week the previous year, but a cold weekend did provide the first days up over the comparable day a year earlier (ie. the 6th Saturday of the year).
The price trend down continues, with the average Hourly Ontario Energy Price dropping over $11/MWh from week 6 the previous year, to only $22.48. The range in the HOEP over the week was extremely limited, with a low of $14.51/MWh and a high of only $28.34.
The depressed prices coincided with an increase in net exports to an average of 1452MW per hour.
Nuclear output was again the most reduced source, compared to the 6th week of 2011, while coal saw the largest increase.
