Spot Price Study in Germany and Denmark

Danish and German experience of wind power is critical to our understanding of the potential for wind power development in the UK. REF has commissioned Mr Bach, formerly Planning Director for the Danish grid operator, Eltra, to conduct a major empirical study of the impact of wind power energy flows on spot prices in Denmark and Germany.

The study examines the relationship between wind power flows and electricity spot prices in Denmark and Germany for the years 2006 to 2008.

The summary and overview is available for free download below


Printed and bound copies of the full-colour, 78 page, study are available from REF (enquiries to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) for £18.00 plus £2.00 postage and packing.

Those ordering printed copies will also receive a CD containing 60mb of spot market and wind power data used in the study, and  made available for further analysis and verification.

The study was officially launched on the 13th of May 2009 at the offices of Herbert Smith LLP in London.
