Electricity prices in Germany were at €280/MWh in early December, almost 300% higher than the €72 in early November, boosted by wind speeds and colder weather. Hamburg hit the minimum wind speed required for electricity generation at around 5 meters a second, or about 11 miles an hour. At the same time, natural gas prices also rose as stockpiles started to withdraw along with lower temperatures.
