Coming in hot: Final T-4 CRM results published

On 7 May, the System Operators released the final results of the 2022-23 T-4 capacity auction, setting out the winners of agreements. While previous T-1 auctions are not comparable, the System Operators were satisfied that prices between the auction had been stable. The clearing price was €46,150/MW, for a total cost of €342mn. As we noted a few weeks ago in our blog ‘There is light that never goes out’ this is an important auction in signalling what capacity will seek to connect to the networks over a period of significant close-down of thermal assets: 1.6GW is expected to leave the system within five years.
