    Crazy Energy Prices....

    Just been talking to the PPA chaps at New Stream Renewables again. Very helpful and knowledgeable as always. Looks like energy pricing stabilising albeit at some incredibly strong levels. Again some useful updates on their website ...

    Crazy Energy Prices....

    Incredible to see UK power prices at over £4000 MWh last night. This is a nice summary of the current situation from the folks at newstream https://www.newstreamrenewables.com/news/lng-supplies-remain-tight-as-storm-ida-weakens/ Good news for PPAs less good news for power bills!

    Piers Morgan sacked

    I liked the fact that Morgan is unpredictable in his views and can be surprised as to which side of the argument he ends up on... left or right. Not sure who was advising M&H as to where the upside was other than cash...

    New Export PPA Energy Suppliers

    Hi Alex, If you are new to this and looking for feedback / research on PPAs have a chat to New Stream Renewables. We have used them for a good few years now on PPA renewals, advice etc..

    Recent ppa?

    From the summary comparison tables that newstream produced for me i would say that 4 or 5 are more competitive than them! Devil in detail when trying to do like for like PPA comparisons though. Re Opus no issue with them and have contracted in past btw.

    Recent ppa?

    I would give Jamie at Newstream Renewables a call. Just renewed some PPAs for 12 months starting April. Market is looking strong. They presented a number of options (broke down all the bits, embedded benefits, REGOs etc.. which is useful when trying to compare a quote from someone like...

Help us with advice on PPAs, run our tenders etc... they also managed to do a good deal for us on the import earlier in the year. Jamie or Charlie. They have some market updates that are also...

    Poll Covid 19 Vaccine

    News Headlines : Oxford University vaccine is 70% effective…… but if you take the recommended 2 dose its 90%. Surely should read : Oxford University vaccine is 90% effective but if you don’t take the recommended dose that drops… probably a bit too positive for British press..

    New Stream Renewables

    Totally agree re being pro-active on PPAs and not taking the easy. Clearly you are on it! To clarify what i meant by sticking with NSR is that in my opinion they provide me with all the options (i have contracted with 3 different parties over 5 years) and help me with strategy on timing /...

    New Stream Renewables

    Thanks. I think I will stick with NSR for now anyway. Still don't really understand why one would tie themselves into fixing a PPA at a certain / fixed date via an auction website given current market volatility.

    Vaccine has been created .

    Like the positivity.... "Who says the UK doesn't manufacture anything these days? British biotech companies are very very good."
