SEE hydrology and an exciting August?

Eylert Ellefsen - 7 August 2019 22:15

August can become an exciting month for traders in the SEE region. Recent precipitation forecasts have remained very dry. If these continue, there will be a further reduction in hydropower production and an additional upward pressure on spot-prices in the SEE-region. This is the conclusion gleaned from EQ’s new Pan European hydro model, which will be launched soon.

Large differences in Alpine hydro balances

Eylert Ellefsen - 3 August 2019 12:05

EQ's new hydrology models indicate that we enter August with large differences in hydrological balance across the Alpine area. Switzerland and Austria now have reservoir fillings of, respectively, 12% and 8% above their seasonal normal, whereas France and Italy are on their seasonal normal. High snow reservoirs and delayed melting during the spring, was followed by a heatwave end of June and start of July. This sparked melting, led to high inflow levels and ultimately rapidly increasing hydro reservoir levels in Switzerland and Austria.
