A defining year for energy markets
Strong performance in defining year for energy markets
Danske Commodities delivered adjusted EBIT of EUR 272 million in a year with unprecedented market volatility. Extreme weather events and a faster-than-expected economic bounce-back from Covid-19 combined with low gas storage levels resulted in historically high energy prices, which created both opportunities and challenges for energy market participants.

Unprecedented price volatility across energy markets
In 2021, European energy markets saw unprecedented price volatility across commodities. By the end of the year, prices were spiking at record highs, producing price levels times ten. A combination of strong recovery in demand, extreme weather events, unplanned supply outages and underperforming Russian gas deliveries into Europe created a perfect storm for the tightest gas market in recent decades – and unprecedented volatility in energy prices.
