Why is the price of electricity going up?

The prices of the 'pool' have a direct effect on the regulated tariff -the so-called PVPC-, to which almost 11 million consumers in the country are welcomed, and serves as a reference for the other 17 million that have contracted their supply in the free market .

The increase in price in recent months in the electricity market is mainly explained by the
high gas prices
in the markets and carbon dioxide (CO2) emission rights, at all-time highs this year.
