The rising carbon price is starting to have a real impact on coal generation in Europe, with coal output down sharply this year and major utilities rethinking their future energy mix.

Analyst Gerard Wynn joins Energy Insiders to paint the picture of what’s good and bad about the European energy market right now, including why capacity markets don’t encourage much new investment, and the rising role of renewables.

Also, we look at the news of the week, including the AEMC’s catastrophic refusal to change course on network pricing, and the thinking about what new market rules should look like.
