Two large increases this week as February rocketed 1,873 aMW, the fourth consecutive increase, adding on to the 650 aMW jump from last week. March fell 487 aMW after last week’s spike, though still sits well above the previous three weeks’ forecasts. April was essentially flat at 48 aMW, while May marked the third straight week of sharp increases, this time at 715 aMW. June continues to trickle in with another 337 aMW.
February immediately gains 1,500 aMW and holds close to that through the entirety of the month. March takes a sharp drop through the 14th before making small gains until April 7th where the remainder of the month is essentially even. May maxes out on the 4th with a 3,900 aMW increase. That week-on-week increase is held through the 14th before matching last week for the most part until the second week of June.
February 2018 gained enough this week to push it to the second-highest year of the century and just 600 aMW back from 2015. Despite May adding another 715 aMW, it still trails six other years, especially 2017 where the difference is nearly 5,000 aMW.
