The electricians have also paid today the investors' doubts before the Government's plan to reduce the bill of light. In this session, in addition, these doubts have been aggravated by the increase in tension between the executive and the companies of the sector, which at the last minute of Tuesday threatened to cease to produce nuclear energy if the Moncloa plan goes on.
Again as on the eve, Endesa and Iberdrola have been the most punished. The first one has finished the session with a fall of 6.4% after yesterday left 5.2%, while the second has lost 5.8% after retreating the eve by 1.7%. Both command the sector's collapse in the last two days, which has seen 7.490 million euros of its joint value in the IBEX.
Naturgy has been dropped by 0.4%, but in his case the fall is limited by the OPA operation of the IFM fund whose resolution is scheduled for the next few days.
The descents have also been extended to renewable as Solaria (-4.64%), and outside the IBEX, ACCIONA Energy has lost 4.5% in the session.
The reason must be sought by the plan approved yesterday by the Council of Ministers to address the increase in the electric receipt in recent weeks. The price will again mark record tomorrow Thursday at a level of 188.18 euros the megawatio hour (MWh), once the auction of this Wednesday has been celebrated.
Both the minus of gas and the redistribution of the extraordinary benefits of the electrications will be transitory measures, but its impact has unleashed the fears of investors on their impact and, in addition it has aroused the immediate response of the sector, which threatens with the early closure of The plants if the government crosses them the so-called 'fallen benefits of heaven'.
All this in the midst of a growing tension between the government and the main electric companies in the country.
After the approval of the Decree Law on the Council of Ministers, the employer Nuclear Forum, which includes Naturgy, EDP, Endesa and Iberdrola, threatened to cease to produce nuclear energy in case of prosperating the measures promoted by the Executive. A notice that from the United Kingdom Wing, in addition to other parliamentary partners of the Government, have described "blackmail".
The trimming affects mainly nuclear and hydroelectric facilities, which benefit from a price affected by the increase in the emission rights of CO2 and natural gas, and that however they should not pay.
In the control session to the government held on Wednesday in Congress, President Pedro Sánchez has emphasized that his executive "will always defend citizens' interest above any particular pressure or interest," while PSOE spokesman, Héctor Gómez, he has assured that in the executive they will be "firm": "We prioritize citizenship with respect to other benefits that companies may have," he has assured.Updated Date: 20 September 2021, 23:13
