Factors influencing price escalation

The rise in prices in most European countries is attributed to various factors, including the rise in gas prices on international markets. This fuel is used in combined cycle plants and has a significant impact on determining market prices during most hours of the day. In addition, the increase in the value of carbon dioxide (CO2) emission rights also contributes to this situation.

Why does the price of electricity change in each hourly period?

Electricity bill prices are flexible and linked to the wholesale electricity market. For this reason, the price of electricity in each hourly period is determined based on the demand for energy at that time, which gives rise to a constant variation in the cost of electricity throughout the day.

For example, during periods of high demand due to extreme cold temperatures for heating or extreme heat for air conditioners, prices tend to rise. In addition, it is important to consider that the expenses associated with adjustment services, charges, capacity payments, marketing, expenses and the price for interruptibility, among others, can vary the price from one hour to another. With the entry into force in January 2024 of the new calculation methodology for the new regulated electricity tariff, it is expected to give more stability to the electricity market.

The Iberian exception

The so-called ‘Iberian exception’ has been extended until December 31, after the agreement reached by Spain and Portugal with the European Commission. Thus, it is extended for seven months, until the end of this year, and it is not excluded that it could be extended for a longer time if said framework is also extended.

Specifically, the agreement not only represents an extension of the Iberian exception that has already been applied, but also implies some adjustments to accommodate it, such as the price reference, which until now increased by five euros per month, and will now be smoother.

In the original agreement, the aforementioned reference price for gas had an average value of 48.8 euros/MWh: it was 40 euros/MWh for six months, rising 5 euros/MWh every month thereafter. Now, it will increase by 1.1 euros/MWh from last April, to conclude at 65 euros/MWh.

Currently, the Mechanism has had no effect on the Marginal Matching Processes in the Wholesale Markets at the end of February, due to the drop in the price of Natu Natural Gas below the thresholds set for its application, but, if necessary, the extension It will allow maintaining a reasonable price, not so dependent on the evolution of natural gas.

Three appliances that raise your electricity bill

When buying new electrical appliances, it is very important to take into account three key aspects: their energy efficiency, using them properly (some saving modes are available) and verifying that their consumption is adjusted to our electricity bill. However, certain appliances tend to use more electricity than others in general.

Although not every home has a dishwasher, this appliance is one of the most energy consuming. According to OCU calculations, its annual consumption can reach 246 kWh, which represents around 7% of total energy consumption and can translate into an increase of up to 74 euros in the annual electricity bill. The washing machine can also have a high consumption, reaching 255 kWh per year, which means an additional cost of about 77 euros in the annual bill. Finally, the refrigerator is the appliance that consumes the most energy, with an average of 662 kWh per year, which translates into an increase of approximately 199 euros in the annual PVPC rate.
