​Spain reduces the electricity prices for households thanks to the new "Iberian derogation" measure

13 Jun 2022


The European Union has approved state measures in Spain and Portugal to reduce the price of electricity and put limits on electricity bills. This agreement has been known as the "Iberian derogation", as it aims to free the countries of the Peninsula from energy isolation, reducing the price of electricity by between 15 and 20%.


What does the new "Iberian derogation" energy measure consist of?

This new formula, recently approved in Brussels, will allow a gas cap set at 40 euros per megawatt/hour for the first 6 months. After the seventh month, it will gradually increase to an average of 48 euros.

The gas cap will help to halt the upward trend in prices and stabilise them over the next 12 months, from June to May. The megawatt hour will fall from around 210 euros to 130 - 140 euros.

This temporary measure will be reflected in the electricity bill, paying 15-20% less and achieving greater savings in electricity consumption in thousands of homes and businesses in Spain.


When will the "gas cap" come into force in Spain?

The new state measure to reduce electricity prices in Spain will come into force on Wednesday 15 June 2022 and will remain in force until May 2023.


Who benefits?

The reduction in electricity bills will be applied across the board, so it will benefit all consumers. Homes in Spain will be able to benefit from this measure and enjoy a better quality of life.
