But must-run capacity, such as from combined heat and power plants or power plants providing balancing energy, prevented gas-fired and coal-fired plants from shutting down to 0MW capacity when renewable power generation was high and clean dark and spark spreads
I suspect that current spark spreads
are around about zero (they certainly were a year or so ago) which means that 44 [pounds sterling]/ MWh would probably pay for not much more than the gas consumed by a combined-cycle gas turbine.
