Except for the north, the monthly affluent natural energy dropped in all sub-markets
The ONS, or National System Operator, reviewed its projections for accumulated Natural Affluent Energy in the second week of September.
Except for the north, where affluent energy is 57% of the long-term average, accumulated affluent energy is lower than it was in the first week, and below the long-term average across the board.
The situation is better in the southeast/middle-west, where flows are 84% of the long-term average, down 8 percentage points.
Affluent energy went down more in the south, or 23 percentage points, and should be only 61% of the long-term average.
The situation in the northeast is more critical, where affluent natural energy is only 32% of the long-term average, a 4 percentage point drop.
Affluent natural energy is energy that can be obtained from natural river flows.
