Why does the light go up?

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

December began as a month marked by great volatility, with declines in the average of some days to around € 100 / MWh and with certain spikes that widely exceeded the level of € 200 / MWh and now 300 euros / MWh.

But nevertheless, Since December 9, the price of electricity has not dropped below 200 euros Y
in the last week he has run amok
, placing the average monthly price at 235 euros, that is, 35 euros more than last October, the month with the most expensive average to date.
