Listen: UK coal plant shut down could exacerbate power price spikes on tight supply

Coal is on its way out of the UK power generation mix, yet has remained as a fall-back option on days of peak demand such as when the National Grid warned of a natural gas deficit on March 1. Capacity market auctions are at a record low, which could speed up the closure of exiting UK coal plants and power prices are likely to become more volatile as the thermal stack gets narrower. Platts associate editorial director for European power and gas Gareth Carpenter discusses the implications with power and coal editors Shubh Shukla and Joseph Clarke.
