Why What is the light going up?

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

December started as a month marked by great volatility, with falls in the average of some days to around € 100 / MWh and with certain rises that far exceed the level of € 200 / MWh and now 300 euros / MWh.

However, since December 9 the price of electricity has not dropped from 200 euros and in the last week it has run wild, 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.
