Order Adven’s Energy Outlook report

The energy market is changing rapidly and becoming more and more complex. At Adven, we are working with these questions every day.

As the leading partner in the energy transition, we want to help you navigate in this fast-moving environment.

The market is currently very volatile. We talk about an energy crisis that at a first glance seems to be abating, but the underlying causes are far from resolved.

Therefore, once every quarter, we consolidate a report – the Energy Outlook – with some of the main factors impacting the energy market right now as we see it. In the Outlook we discuss, for example, the energy crisis in more detail, take a glance on Nordic power and how the fuel market is developing in terms of fuel source and prices. In this constantly changing environment we also suggest some hedging strategies to limit the risks in financial assets.

Summary of the newest Energy Outlook published at the end of May 2023

The winter was a more manageable challenge than was feared last autumn. Being the second mildest winter in Europe on record, energy consumption plummeted.

And so did prices, but current energy price levels are still much elevated compared to historical averages. On top of this, the record-breaking mild weather is underlying an even longer-lasting crisis than the energy one. Emission pricing has a strong momentum which is increasing the cost of fossil fuels. And with the recent reforms, even more participants are starting to acknowledge this fact.

As Europe is struggling to replace lost energy imports from Russia, new trade flows are emerging, and substitute fuels are being pulled into the supply squeeze. This is a stress test of volume and price risk management for the whole energy complex, with gas, coal, biomass, carbon prices all being more or less caught in the storm.

The second winter of the energy crisis is more than half-way through. Even though the crisis at first glance seems to be abating, the underlying causes are far from resolved.

Relations with Russia have not improved but quite the opposite, as Europe has increased its support to Ukraine. All the while, the political risks continue to be significant with several political interventions in place and several more likely to be introduced. In December, the details of the Fit for 55 reform packages were decided upon by the EU, expanding and tightening the emission trading system.

Electricity prices have come down significantly since the record price-spike in August. The reason is a combination of mild winter weather and economic slowdown, that is weighing on coal-, gas-, biomass-, and carbon prices. But despite the recent drop, energy prices remain much elevated compared to their historical averages.

The applicable hedging strategies remain very much focused on risk management.
