    Following a successful pilot study group project focused on Next Generation Growing (NGG), GrowSave led a workshop on 14 February 2019, hosted by Mill Nurseries, to share some of the lessons learned. More

    Gas prices fell considerably at the beginning of last week due to seasonal demands being so much lower than forecasts. Lessons learned from last years ‘Beast from the East’ have caused stocks to be oversupplied, just in case we’re hit with such cold temperatures again this year. More

    Last week's demand was around 15% lower than expected at this time of year, due to mild temperatures causing gas prices to decrease. Temperatures fell towards the end of the week to around -3°C, causing demand to creep back up above seasonal norms. More

    A combination of low wind generation and colder temperatures created a higher demand for gas last week. Alongside sharp rises in coal and carbon prices, these factors have created increases across the board with both gas and electricity prices moving steeply upwards. More

    As the winter sets in and the days get colder and shorter, maintaining a productive growing environment can be a challenge. For those targeting year-round production, keeping crops warm and well-lit, this can be an expensive time of year with high heating and electricity bills. More

    Gas prices dropped further last week due to milder than forecast weather, which reduced demand for gas. Initially electricity prices did come down in line with the gas market. More

    Gas prices fell last week due to milder than forecasted temperatures causing a fall in demand which, combined with a good flow of natural liquid gas coming through, led to an oversupplied system. Electricity prices tracked gas prices downwards, supported by strong levels of wind generation, but settled towards the end of the week. More

    Gas prices saw a massive drop this week, due to cold weather forecasts being revised, with temperatures returning to milder seasonal norms by the end of the month. On top of this, a healthy amount of liquid natural gas is due to dock this month which has caused prices to drop further. More

    A combination of temperatures falling below seasonal norms, along with a gas pressure failure at a processing plant in Norway, caused gas prices to increase throughout last week. Strong wind levels on Monday provided the grid with 22% of its electricity requirements though, unfortunately, this wasn’t enough to prevent electricity prices from tracking gas upwards. More

    putting an end to the plummeting prices of the last couple of weeks for gas and electricity. In addition, despite milder temperatures, gas prices increased this week owing to low wind levels calling for more gas-fueled generation. Electricity followed gas upwards at the start of the week, but strengthened with the improved wind output mid-week. More
