Wind output remains relatively strong, 10% more of the stack than gas contribution, but underdelivering against forecast, which could support morning peak prompt prices.
Aug 21 Brent is down $0.42/barrel as the EIA report showed a gain in gasoline stocks, suggesting demand has not lifted much as hoped, and Libyan supply is set to pick up again.
#Wind output has picked up through this morning but still provides just c. 17.5% of the stack. However, this coupled with stronger #solar output recently should lead to a robust #renewable showing.
