Average price of electricity in Spain DROPS AGAIN on Monday, August 15


On Monday, August 15, the average price of electricity drops again in Spain, by 9.23 per cent.


The average price of electricity for regulated rate customers linked to the wholesale market in Spain will drop by 9.23 per cent on Monday, August 15, compared to today Sunday, August 14. Specifically, the price will be €244.19/MWh

According to provisional data from the Iberian Market Operator of Energy (OMIE), in the auction, the average price of electricity in the wholesale market -the so-called ‘pool’- will be €145.35/MWh tomorrow.

Monday’s maximum price will be registered between 10pm and 11pm, at €195/MWh, while the minimum for the day, of €110/MWh, will be between 11am and 12 midday.

This price is the result of adding the average 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.

To this price of the ‘pool’ must be added the compensation of €98.84/MWh to the gas companies that has to be paid by the consumers who benefit from the measure, the consumers of the regulated tariff (PVPC), or those who, despite being in the free market, have an indexed rate.
