The Vice President of Ecological Transition, Teresa Ribera, yesterday began a round of meetings with the five great leaders of the electricity operated in the country to address the complex situation of the electricity invoice, which continues to rise despite the noise that has generated between investors Your package of measurements.
The possibility that Ribera suspends the regulation he approved less than a month ago - as he published five days - promoted the contribution of electricity, which still is 10% below the level they registered before adjustment. Official sources of ecological transition were limited to explain that the ministry would review its measures if Europe takes the reins of the crisis and approves measures for the continent's assembly.
Electric and industrial companies trust that Ribera corrects the drain that has caused his market intervention in numerous and various fronts. Few believe that he will kick out his own regulation, since this would irritate the United we can and would leave in a situation very committed to the vice president himself, but he is betting that changes will occur to the pressure on the industrial groups - to which the Own IBERDROLA or ENDESA have already warned that they will repercuterize the hax- or adjust it to the current gas prices to prevent the adjustment from being even greater than at 2,600 million euros intended initially.

When regularization is performed, in 2023, they will have to return the difference between what is charged and stipulated. Endesa's proposal is that this regularization occurs at the end of this exercise, which would be an injection of 4,000 million euros in the system according to the calculations made by the company.
