Volume-weighted average prices for German onshore wind recovered 41% month-on-month after falling to the lowest since May 2021.

The Explorer shows the "capture price" renewable energy generators receive based on hourly output and pricing data on a monthly basis.

As such capture prices take account of the cannibalization effect caused by Europe's growing fleet of solar and wind farms and are a more accurate reflection of value than average day-ahead wholesale power prices.

Solar capture prices in Spain were lowest across the twelve European capture price assessments by Platts for S&P Global Commodity Insights.

Only German onshore wind had a lower capture rate at 85% compared to 88% for Spanish solar.

Daily capture prices for UK offshore wind ranged from GBP40/MWh to GBP93/MWh, while the capture rate remained relatively stable around 94%.

Overall, January wind generation across Europe’s big five markets tracked by Platts’ assessments fell 2% on year to 41 TWh, while solar output was up 23% on year at 6 TWh.
