Another Sunday with a record in electricity – Energy

According to EFE, the value registered on the wholesale market this Sunday is 9% higher than what was set last week, positioning this Sunday as the most expensive in history.Traditionally, Sundays are days when economic activity is lower and energy demand is lower. The highest price this Sunday will be between 9:00 pm and 10:00 pm, when the price should reach 199 euros/MWh, while the lowest will be registered between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm, when it will be negotiated at 134.1 euros, according to the Spanish press. Despite the record, the price of electricity is this Sunday almost 15% cheaper than the historical maximum of 188 euros/MWh, recorded on 15 September 2021.

The escalation in electricity results mainly from the sharp rise in the international cost of natural gas.

However, the Energy Services Regulatory Authority (ERSE) recently announced that from October 1st the price of the Energy tariff in the regulated market will increase by 5 euros per MWh.

It is the second increase in the energy tariff defined by ERSE in 2021, after an identical update was carried out in July, in a market that currently has 933,000 customers.
