The worth of the wholesale electrical energy market, the so-called poolto once more spray this Saturday a brand new minimal worth to date in 2024, with a mean for the day of 0.59 euros per megawatt hour (MWh), rthus recording its lowest degree within the final decade.

The most worth of the day shall be 3.5 euros/MWh, between 7:00 p.m. and eight:00 p.m., though virtually all through your entire day shall be at zero euros/MWh or in its environment, in line with provisional knowledge from the Iberian Energy Market Operator (OMIE) collected by Europa Press.

Thus, till 8:00 p.m., a complete of 13 hours shall be added to these zero euros/MWh, whereas there shall be one other seven hours all through the day, virtually very near that degree. However, this worth is just not then transferred to the receipt precisely at these zero euros, since there are mounted prices for the electrical energy client, resulting from tolls, fees and system changes.

We should return till 2014 and 2013 to seek out such low ranges for a day with common costs for a day beneath the euro/MWh.

This important decline in pool is due, primarily, to the presence of the entrance that has been leaving plentiful precipitation within the Ibrian Peninsula, with wind and snow, and which can proceed within the coming days, thus selling the entry of renewables -especially wind power- into the technology combine. In addition, it’s added that on weekends there’s a drop in demand that makes the value even cheaper.

In the primary eight days of March, the common pool It stands at round 12 euros/MWh, after having been seven days beneath the extent of 10 euros/MWh. In February, the common day by day worth of the wholesale market stood at 40 euros/MWh, with a lower of 46% in comparison with January and 69.7% in comparison with a yr in the past -132.06 euros/MWh-, resulting from The excessive participation of renewables, particularly because of the storms of the final week.

VAT at 21%

This truth brought on electrical energy to briefly get well its Value Added Tax (VAT) of 21% since Marchafter the wholesale market worth registered a mean decrease than 45 euros/MWh in February, the ceiling set within the Royal Decree on pressing measures.

The final Council of Ministers final yr authorized that the VAT on electrical energy would go from 5% to 10% and that this price could be maintained till the tip of 2024, supplied that the situation was met that MWh costs within the wholesale market have been met. stay excessive, above these 45 euros/MWh.

Specifically, the VAT would develop into 21% at any time when the wholesale worth was beneath that degree within the calendar month previous to the final day of billing. That is, all invoices that embody consumption for at the very least someday in March may have VAT of 21%. Only households with the social bonus are free from this improve, since their VAT will stay at 10% all through 2024.

In any case, the pool doesn’t precisely symbolize the ultimate quantity within the worth of electrical energy for a client lined by the regulated tariff, since with the entry in 2024 a brand new technique of calculating the PVPC was adopted, which includes a basket of costs within the medium and long run to keep away from robust fluctuations, with out shedding the short-term worth references that encourage financial savings and environment friendly consumption.

Specifically, the proportion of linkage with the value of the pool It shall be progressively lowered, to include the references of the futures markets, in order that these symbolize 25% in 2024, 40% in 2025 and 55% from 2026.
