The wind sector and the gas sector, concerned about government measures to reduce the invoice of light

The Wind Enterprise Association (EEE) has expressed concern about the measures approved by the Council of Ministers to slow down the rise in light. As they have warned in a statement, they can have an adverse impact on the wind sector.

As explained in this document, 21% of the Spanish wind farm will be negatively affected by the new measures approved by the Government. The Royal Decree, denounce "puts its focus on a part of what constitutes the reality of the electricity market: the spot market." Thus, it is not in consideration "the implications in other market environments, which coexist with the Spot market, such as the term markets with coverages, etc."

In this way, the Government proposal "affects projects with PPAS already signed in price ranges well below the current and planned spot prices, which may be forced to stop temporarily in the autumn and winter months, when wind generation Make prices drop substantially at certain hours of the day. "

"The RDL does not distinguish between the reality of the income obtained by each of the technologies of the MIX, applying a reduction of 'flat' form income to all non-inframarginal technologies," continue. And they add that "wind is the most efficient technology to reduce the price of electricity", but it will be affected "with greater impact" by the measures.

For its part, the Spanish gas association, sedigas, claims a "fair and similar treatment for gas with respect to other sources of energy" in another statement.

The organization "shares" that some of the extraordinary measures announced by the Executive "were necessary to temporarily protect the most vulnerable energy consumers". However, they consider that the government should use "the same criteria for all the energies when protecting vulnerable consumers".

Thus, it is shown "disagreeable with the non-reduction of taxation that affects consumers of gas and demand similar treatment." In his opinion, "as appropriate" would be that gas and other forms of energy that have also been affected "by this extraordinary pricing juncture" also benefited from the tax reduction, both from VAT, and the Special Hydrocarbons Tax (IEH), "thus guaranteeing a fair and balanced treatment regarding the granted to electricity".
