The two largest power producers, RWE AG and EON SE, are especially keen to sell their gas-fired plants, rendered uncompetitive by the rise of renewable energy on the one hand and record low coal prices on the other.

In 2011 the model predicted the forthcoming crash would bring Brent down to $67 which was out by 30%...or more – Brent today is $50. That doesn’t prove

En un estudio de Dynamar sobre los precios del combustible, citado por Anave, el analista Dirk Visser advierte de que el 13 de enero de 2015, el IFO 380 costaba 236 dólares por tonelada en el puerto de Róterdam, frente a los 558 $/t de agosto de 2014.

The play is also driving up tanker hire rates, and shipping firms have seen their share prices surge in recent days.
