A soft demand/supply complex drove short-term contract prices downwards towards the back end of last week. This move was a consequence of increasing levels of wind generation, higher temperatures, higher solar generation levels and lower national demand forecasts as the country headed into a bank holiday weekend. Early signs this morning are that some price correction is taking place.

Temperatures are expected to cool somewhat and with Russian gas flows into Western Europe dropping by over 15% over the course of the weekend, some upward impetus has bolstered short term pricing.

A strengthening wider commodity mix added some bullish sentiment to prices further along the curve. Indeed, the Brent Crude Oil price is one such benchmark that has held onto previous gains. The demand picture for Oil continues to improve as global lockdown gradually eases, boosting forecasted demand levels for the commodity.

This, coupled with suggestions that OPEC+ and the US are continuing to restrict production levels effectively has improved the price outlook even further. EUA Carbon also held comfortably above the 21 Euros/tonne level, responding to gradually increasing European energy demand. Naturally, headlines remain focused on Dominic Cummings’ movements and his much debated breach of lockdown rules.

Price increases on the near curve were contained somewhat, as reports of milder weather and a healthy LNG outlook for the remainder of this month continued to suppress price movements for short term contracts. Norwegian flows into the UK remained low as the week closed, with a number of scheduled maintenance procedures going ahead on key North Sea infrastructure. 

The renewables mix also remained strong on Friday and throughout the course of the weekend, with levels of solar and wind generation making up a significant portion of the National Grid’s stack.

Further along the curve, bullish sentiment took hold courtesy of a strong commodity mix. Indeed, strong gains in Brent Crude Oil fueled these increases, with Brent rising by over 7% following the release of the IEA’s forecast for global stocks, detailing a reduction of 5.5m barrels/day for the second half of this calendar year.

Pound Sterling weakened throughout Friday and over the course of the weekend.

Demand levels heading into the bank holiday weekend sat much lower than seasonal norms largely due to warmer weather, reducing heating demand. In addition, the bright conditions boost solar generation but this additional supply was offset by low wind generation.

The wider commodity mix have witnessed steady gains in recent weeks as countries eased business and social lockdowns and fuel demand has picked up modestly. Indeed, renewed optimism going into the weekend provided support for Carbon prices, which in turn added some pressure to UK Energy prices. However, Oil prices have slipped more than 1% this morning as the demand glut persists and economic fears continue as a result of the pandemic, cancelling out any support from supply cuts of the world’s largest producers.

The Pound looks on track to remain subdued over the coming weeks as the UK starts it’s long road to recovery in comparison to some other nations, with PM Boris Johnson’s announcement on Sunday that it would be in August that the majority of the economy would be open again.

Some early morning bullishness was seen during Friday’s session as the expectation of a rise in exports from the UK to Belgium forced day-ahead and month-ahead contracts upwards.

Furthermore, an expectant fall in daily LNG send out into the UK’s gas system also had a bullish impact. Throughout the course of the day bearish sentiment began to take hold, instigate a correction of some of the upside risk seen earlier on. Stronger levels of wind generation, warmer temperatures, a weakening Carbon price and a short upcoming week, all playing their part.

Forthcoming upside risk could be derived from any scheduled Norwegian pipeline maintenance during May and any alleviating of the considerable impact that economic lockdown across Europe is having on industrial energy demand.

Despite a strong end to April, analysts are forecasting a bearish month for Pound Sterling. Weakness in global stock and index markets are continuing to have an impact on the Pound’s direction, a result of the considerable reliance that the UK economy has on its banking sector. Furthermore, some strengthening trends in the US Dollar and the Euro are also playing their part.

This week’s market reports show us how a mixture of varied movements was seen across UK gas and electricity price curves in last Thursday’s session, ahead of the long Easter weekend. Strong pipeline flows from Norway and via LNG injection into the system ensured that the system was slightly oversupplied from open to market close. Additionally, the short-term LNG outlook remains positive, with 10 LNG vessels scheduled to arrive in the UK before the end of April.

UK and European weather forecasts remained consistent with previous predictions, showing warmer weekend climes over the Easter period and cooler forecasts heading further into the week, furthering the bearish pressures on gas near-curve market caused by slowing industrial energy demand.

Ahead of the much-heralded OPEC meeting over the Easter weekend, commodity markets held their breath to see how any proposed output cuts would affect Brent Crude Oil prices. Consequently, gas and electricity price movements further along the curve remained somewhat muted.

The anticipated agreement on production cuts was agreed, however a sharp rise in Brent Crude was not forthcoming as the record supply cut was not ample in easing concerns regarding the market’s persistent oversupply and the bearish impacts of COVID-19’s continuing spread.

With the lockdown period for the UK expected to be extended after other European countries announced an extension, it is unknown how long the situation with COVID-19 will last.

This week’s market report shows near curve prices came under bearish pressure from an oversupplied system on Friday, as the UK’s gas supplies recovered considerably following the previous day’s temporary pipeline flow restriction from Norway.

There have been higher temperatures over the weekend which have so far spread over into this week, helping to keep demand forecasts in check, with suggestions of stronger wind forecasts also helping to alleviate some pressure on gas-fired generation in making up the national grid’s stack.

Low market liquidity continued to impact on electricity markets, with muted trading activity ensuring wider bid/offer spreads and limited availability of longer-term contract prices in particular.

Further along the curve, prices were lifted somewhat in line with some considerable increases seen in the Brent Crude Oil price on Friday. The price has risen considerably since it was near an 18 year low at 23.36$/bl last week. Investors appeared to remain optimistic that a unified production cut plan could be put in place between Saudi Arabia, Russia and the US, lifting the commodity price back above the 30$/bl mark. EUA Carbon prices, will edging down on Friday, traded above the 18$/bl level.

As we almost come to an end of the UK’s lockdown period, there is still uncertainty as to whether or not restrictions will be lifted yet.

This week we can see the impact of how stricter lock down measures are meaning that demand levels continue to fall as companies are now operating from home or have ceased trading until further notice, leaving offices and factories shut.

This morning’s session has seen the UK Gas system open largely oversupplied again, as the UK could look to offload surplus supply into mainland Europe. This would add further weight to prices. A Qatari LNG tanker is expected at South Hook terminal this morning and a further import of Yamal LNG volume is expect into Dragon terminal tomorrow.

Brent Crude Oil is currently trading near 18 year low as the US, the world’s biggest oil consumer, surpassed China with the most confirmed cases of coronavirus. Prices are now so low that many producers can no longer pump crude at a profit, resulting in the shutdown of fields, while storage is also rapidly filling due to the steep contango which is also expected to curb output.

The British Pound has improved against the Euro and most the world's largest currencies over the course of the past 24 hours but has since fallen against the U.S. Dollar amidst ongoing volatility due to the coronavirus economic crisis.

In this week’s energy market report, we can see that the UK’s gas system opened long on Friday morning, with healthy levels of Norwegian and European continental flows reported. More people have started to work from home in the last few weeks which means that forecasted demand levels for domestic consumers has been underestimated by National Grid. The announcement from Boris Johnson yesterday was that stricter measures are now being put in place to stop people from leaving their homes, unless it is absolutely essential.

Temperature forecasts have predicted cooler weather in the last few weeks, however there was warmer weather at the weekend which is expected to continue for the foreseeable future. High levels of renewable yesterday have aided downward movements with Wind generation currently making up 29% of the generation stack.

GBP was up against the Euro and the Dollar this morning following the UK government’s decision to lower interest rates to a 325-year low – from 0.25% to 0.1% to attempt to keep the UK economy afloat as COVID-19 continues to dampen domestic spending and economic forecasts.

In this week’s market report, we can see that the UK System is short thus far this week as demand sits just below seasonal norms and storage send out remains low. Wind generation is strong again today making up around 24% of generation stack but electricity supply is heavily reliant on gas powered generation at 45%.

Temperature forecasts adjusted back to seasonal norms on Monday, with just a spot of warmer weather expected today, although rain is still present. The rest of the week is set to follow with seasonal norms expected.

Significant movements in Oil prices this morning have seen the commodity plunge 31% in its worst loss since 1991 amid price war concerns. Global markets have been impacted by the threat of a price war between oil exporting group OPEC and its main ally Russia.

On the back of continued global fears surrounding the Coronavirus outbreak and now significant drops in oil, investors have been selling stocks in a global markets amid the uncertainty. The Coronavirus has had a significant impact globally, with Italy being on lockdown and major sporting events being cancelled.

In this week’s energy market report, we can see how milder temperatures are having an effect on the UK gas demand. Last Friday brought milder temperatures than we have seen recently and an increase in the level of wind generation, the UK system was much more balanced as gas demand reduced to the seasonal average. Norway flow remained strong at 108mcm with LNG send out just shy of 70mcm.

The decrease in demand also meant that UK Storage withdrawals fell in line to match up with it. Wind levels have increased so far this week and make up around 12% of the current generation stack with renewable sources adding up to over a quarter of the total mix.

Brent Crude Oil prices are now attempting to recoup lost ground after there were losses of c. $7/bl last week due to the Coronavirus outbreak, which continues to spread and affect trade. The prices increased by 2.75% after opening yesterday morning.

energyace fuel poverty

EnergyAce is a proud patron of National Energy Action (NEA) and has been for over 6 years, supporting the great work that it does across the UK in helping to eradicate fuel poverty from households.

Back on the 29th November we posted to support the NEA on Fuel Poverty Awareness Day, a national initiative with the goal of raising awareness of fuel poverty and the solutions that are available to help those in need.

The day itself was in the same week that it was revealed 23,200 extra people died in Winter 2018/2019, which has been described as a “badge of shame”.

The day also launched the Warm and Safe Homes Campaign, with the NEA continuing to raise awareness over the winter about the issue of fuel poverty and the solutions available.

 As much as we wish that the day wasn’t needed in the first place, it was great to see the amount of support on social media for the NEA.

The results of the day generated fantastic exposure for the charity:

-          1108 posts on social media

-          539 individuals and organisations supporting on social media

-          5.2 million reach of social media messaging

-          46 online and print articles referencing fuel poverty awareness day

-          65 million potential reach from online and print media messaging

The results were double the previous years, with individuals and businesses pledging their support, however there is still a lot of work needed to put a stop to fuel poverty.

In this week’s market report we can see there has been a continuation of the effect of current global issues and the impact they are having on the market. There was a change in the weather with much milder weather forecasts leading to a lower gas demand than normal.

However, there has been higher wind generation levels recorded through Storm Ciara and Storm Dennis resulting in less pressure on the UK’s gas system to meet heating and gas demands. The expectation of a further 14 LNG cargoes reaching the UK by 15th March ensured a bearish picture for short-term contracts, filtering through to front seasonal prices.

An increase in the number of Coronavirus cases in South Korea and China led to a further fall in the prices of Brent Crude early on in Friday’s session. Commodity prices have seen a substantial hit over the past couple of weeks with oil prices seeing a 4% slide on demand concerns as the virus continues to spread.

Brent Crude prices had lifted to just below $60/bl after the US reported a smaller than anticipated stock build but these gains were quickly wiped out as the virus continues to spread with cases increasing around the world.

When looking at your energy bills, it is interesting to see how many different factors influence the total cost of your delivered energy. Topical subjects like coronavirus a seamingly unrelated global issue can have a significant effect on the rise and fall of market prices.

The UK has been on high alert in the past week with Storm Dennis approaching and increases in peak wind generation helped to cut demand from gas-fired means of generation in balancing the UK’s demand/supply quandary on Friday, ensuring a healthily supplied National Grid.

Temperature forecasts in the UK are set to increase meaning that the UK’s gas demand for heating purposes has come to halt. High winds persisted over the course of the weekend and are expected to last throughout the week.

Brent Crude Oil prices traded steadily on Friday, balancing predictions of impending OPEC-led supply cuts against concerns that the Coronavirus would continue to impact on Chinese and global demand for the commodity, with first quarter oil demand already confirmed to have fallen significantly year-on-year, according to the IEA.

Elsewhere, EUA Carbon prices continued to trade above the 24.30 mark added some bullish support across curve. The British Pound continued to trade above significant psychological levels against both the Euro and US Dollar, above €1.20 and $1.30 respectively.

energyace energy saving tips for business

The cost of energy is expensive and it is increasing day by day. Energy costs are a significant proportion of most businesses’ outgoings, so it is essential to keep the costs under control and reduce them where possible, to maximise business growth and profitability in the future.

Almost all businesses in this country are leaking energy – studies by the Carbon Trust show that energy savings of up to 20% are possible for businesses meaning that there is not only a financial saving to be made but a chance to help the environment as well by reducing waste energy. Many business do not deliberately waste energy however significant savings can be made in almost every business. The key is for businesses to identify opportunities on making savings.

power economy ltd power factor correction

Just like Triggers Broom, power factor correction systems can last forever when a planned maintenance program is in place to ensure long term trouble free operation

Power factor correction systems manufacturer by Power Economy Ltd of Bahama Rd, Haydock in the 80s and early 90s still feature heavily in the industrial and commercial sectors of the UK, this longevity is great testament to the quality of components used with 3TK44 Siemens power factor correction switching contactors and Vishay capacitors, this trend has been continued with EnergyAce utilising quality components from the same manufacturers.

EnergyAce regularly maintain Power Economy Ltd power factor correction systems and harmonic filters throughout the UK and overseas   

Power Economy Ltd ceased to trade in the UK following its sad demise in the late 90s with some of its employees later joining Power Efficient Systems Ltd (now EnergyAce) in 2002 who picked up warranty issues and planned power factor correction maintenance contracts.

This attention to planned maintenance has allowed many of the Power Economy Ltd power factor correction systems to remain functional today and still offering great value for money  when you think of the return the systems have provided in energy savings and greenhouse gas reduction since the 80s & 90s.

power efficient systems ltd power factor correction

EnergyAce is 18 years of age this week and it only seems like yesterday since Gary Vizard & Eileen Vizard incorporated the business in January 2002 

Originally named as Power Efficient Systems Ltd, the company was incorporated to address the growing need  for businesses to become more energy efficient, reduce carbon emissions and to reduce energy costs in the face of growing energy bills.  

Thankfully most of the developed world seems finally to have woken up to the dangers of harmful emissions and although there is still a long way to go, great strides have been made with a view to meeting the Committee on Climate Change recommendations to target net-zero greenhouse gases for the UK by 2050. 

The company has changed over the years with new innovative products, improved services and a stronger overall proposition to help companies reduce energy costs and harmful emissions, the development of the EnergyAce brand later saw the company change its name to align with its success.

Power Efficient Systems Ltd became EnergyAce in 2018 and below shows how the company logo has evolved since 2002.

Its often very difficult to save something that you cant see and for many companies energy is one of the largest operating costs, second only to staff salaries.

For energy-intensive businesses, energy can be the main cost and often in some cases the differentiation between financial profit & loss.

That’s why it is vital for most business to understand where and when energy is consumed to enable a coherent energy reduction strategy to be drawn up and implemented

Power Factor Correction is a capacitor based device normally installed on the electrical distribution system, its purpose is to improve efficiency known as power factor when operating machines or motors.

Power Factor Correction works by automatically switching capacitors in or out of circuit on a varying electrical load to counteract the negative inefficient effects of motors and machines.

Power Factor is the difference between Real Power, useful power neededto perform a task and Reactive Power, Power drawn in addition to useful power but does notcontribute to the task, effectively you may be paying for power that’s being wasted which could be likened to a large head on a pint of beer.

Not long now until EnergyAce moves into brand new purpose built premises.

The huge demand for EnergyAce in many Industrial and commercial applications and the development of the remote online metering, monitoring and protection systems has resulted in a need to move to a larger factory manufacturing power factor correction, voltage optimisation systems, metering solutions and switchgear. 

Changes is the way penalties like reactive power is charged on electricity bills means that power factor correction systems are now in high demand and keeping up with manufacture  a challenge we have had to meet head on.

EnergyAce are very pleased to announce two new engineers to the family. Please welcome Tom Ryan and Anthony Jaycocks.

A significant growth in demand for our EnergyAce Energy Saving System has created a need for two new additional engineers for both our manufacturing department and our field engineering department.

Tom joins us after working on numerous electrical engineering projects. His experience will be valuable to us in both manufacturing our energy saving equipment and also in servicing the equipment out in the field. Tom commented “Having previously worked in the renewables industry, I feel it is important for businesses to ensure they are running efficiently in order to cut their costs and to help the environment”.

Anthony joins our field engineers team having previously worked as an electrician on some very large scale projects. He commented “I find my role very interesting as our equipment is not specific to one set industry. For me, being out on the road and visiting a wide range of different companies and meeting new people is what makes my job so enjoyable”.

What is power factor correction and how does it save energy

Power Factor Correction is a device that is installed on an electrical system to improve the overall electrical efficiency known as power factor of an electrical supply that operates machines or motors.

All motors which can come in the form of a machine, conveyor, mixer, compressor, HVAC, refrigeration, elevator or escalator etc all have an efficiency rating known as power factor.

The ultimate desired power factor is 1.00pf (100% efficient) although most motors operate at a much lower efficiency or power factor which when the effects are accumulated on an electrical supply, the results can be as low at 0.50 power factor and commonly around 0.80 power factor on a typical uncorrected industrial electrical supply.

The solution is to install a power factor correction system which works by switching capacitors in and out of circuit on an electrical supply to counteract the negative inefficient effects of motors automatically.

voltage sabiliser

A voltage stabiliser is a device that is installed on an electrical supply to maintain and stabilise a suitable voltage level.

All mains powered electrical equipment require a voltage input to be maintained within certain limits although equipment receiving voltages outside of these limits may malfunction or fail prematurely.

A low supply voltage may cause malfunction and a high supply voltage, serious damage.

In some processes it may be crucial to maintain a steady voltage level by installing a voltage stabiliser to ensure voltage levels remain within close limits of ±0.5% or ±1%.
