The price of electricity falls 5.5% this Friday, to 276.39 euros/MWh


The average price of electricity for regulated rate customers linked to the wholesale market will fall 5.5% on Friday compared to this Thursday, after the increases in recent days, to 276.39 euros per megawatt hour (MWh) , according to provisional data from the Iberian Energy Market Operator (OMIE) collected by Europa Press.

This price is the result of adding the average price of the auction in the wholesale market to the compensation that the demand will pay to the combined cycle plants for the application of the 'Iberian exception' to cap the price of gas for the generation of electricity .

In the auction, the average price of electricity in the wholesale market - the so-called 'pool' - stood at 141.51 euros/MWh for Friday. The maximum price will be registered in the first hour of the day, with 161 euros/MWh, while the minimum for the day, of 119 euros/MWh, will occur between 7:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.

To this price of the 'pool' is added the compensation of 134.88 euros/MWh to the gas companies that has to be paid by the consumers who are beneficiaries of the measure, the consumers of the regulated rate (PVPC) or those who, despite being in the free market, they have an indexed rate.

In the absence of the 'Iberian exception' mechanism to cap the price of gas for electricity generation, the price of electricity in Spain would be on average around 328.14 euros/MWh, which is around 52 euros/MWh more than with the compensation for clients of the regulated rate, who will thus pay around 16% less on average.

The Iberian mechanism, which entered into force on June 15, limits the price of gas for electricity generation to an average of 48.8 euros per MWh over a period of twelve months, thus covering the coming winter, a period in which energy prices are more expensive.

Specifically, the 'Iberian exception' sets a path for natural gas for electricity generation at a price of 40 euros/MWh in the initial six months, and subsequently, a monthly increase of five euros/MWh until the end of the measure .
