The performance of wholesale markets has been undermined by the introduction of increasing levels of renewable generation capacity that receives priority in dispatch. Prices have become more volatile and less predictable due to renewable output changes that are not linked to demand levels. The renewable generation output may be increasing when the demand is falling making prediction of the demand and marginal prices very difficult. The result is to place a premium on flexibility in generation and demand.
