Topic: Polystyrene and PET – the outlook for H2 2020
After experiencing a sharp correction in H1, polystyrene (PS) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) prices have recovered. But can this momentum be sustained? PS producers have been enjoying robust margins but this could be at risk if high prices prompt substitution of PS in some applications. Meanwhile, packaging demand is stabilizing. What impact will this have on PET in H2? Polystyrene: Can high producer margins be sustained?

Fundamental vs Market – the key risk/opportunities of PPAs in Germany

Time: 10:00AM-11:00AM BST

In this webinar Pexapark and ICIS will discuss the key opportunities and risks associated with PPAs for new build renewables in Germany from the market and the fundamental perspective. We will look at the current market offering in terms of products, pricing, liquidity and discuss key challenges and trends. We will then compare the fair value to the potential fundamental dynamics of the market regarding capacity developments (thermal and renewable), fuel price expectations and weather developments. This will allow market participants to gain insights and form opinions on the potential opportunities in the German PPA market from both a market and fundamental perspective.
