Sweden will install 2 GW of wind power capacity this year, including 1.2 GW in the fourth quarter alone, according to an update by the Swedish Wind Energy Association (SWEA).

At the end of September, the country had 8.2 GW of wind in operation, including 190 MW offshore. It also had over 4.6 GW of onshore wind parks under construction.


SWEA expects capacity additions of 1.66 GW and 1.76 GW in 2020 and 2021, respectively.


The association, also known as Svensk Vindenergi, is forecasting a doubling of wind power generation in Sweden by 2022. Annual power generation by wind farms will hit 39,939 GWh by then under the base case scenario in the quarterly update, which is also SWEA’s official forecast. Generation in 2019, 2020 and 2021 will stand at 20,747 GWh, 28,274 GWh and 34,362 GWh, respectively. In 2020 Sweden will have 14.3 GW of wind capacity.

EDF is revising upwards its nuclear output estimate in France for 2020, to around 315-325 terawatt-hours. In April, the French state-owned utility said it expected generation this year to be about 300 TWh, down from an initial expectation of 375-390 TWh before the coronavirus outbreak.


Daily (06.07.2020) NBP spot plunged by almost 5% on Friday influenced by an upward revision of the French nuclear output.

Crude oil prices lost momentum on Friday, on renewed fears over global fuel demand as U.S reported a surge in coronavirus cases. Nevertheless, signs of improving global economy and OPEC+ record high supply cuts limited the loss. As a result, Brent crude decreased by 0.8% to $42.80 a barrel. Similarly, WTI futures traded 1% lower at $40.24 a barrel.
