The crisis that has caused the electricity bill to skyrocket at the start of the year has penetrated the Coalition government. Some members of United we can They have even called for the nationalization of some of the large energy companies, as in the case of Endesa, or the creation of a public electricity company that allows the Executive to control these demand peaks. Some ideas that the Minister for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, Teresa Ribera, has ruled out before an audience full of investors.
“We do not consider that some of the proposals of our partners in the coalition government to nationalize or create a public energy company is a good idea“, defends the fourth vice president. Precisely, Ribera corrects the members of Pablo Iglesias’ party by sharing a discussion with the CEO of Endesa, José Bogás, at the Foro Spain Investors Day organized by Estudio de Comunicación.
“There will be no surprises, our obligation is that there is good market behavior and we handle different options to ensure it, “the minister insisted.” Our energy plan is already clearly reflected in the National Integrated Energy and Climate Plan (PNIEC), “adds Teresa Ribera to the question of those present.
On the subject of price review, he has also defended the role of the National Markets and Competition Commission (CNMC). “It would seem foolhardy to say that there are elements that lead us to think that there may have been a speculative position,” he says. “Yes I think it is very important, and we see it these days, when we see the type of reaction that there is on the part of a good part of the consumers, that the system is as transparent and supervised as possible “, clarifies Ribera.
After that, the vice president recognized in this colloquium that there are “pending tasks”. They consider that the progress of their team in this legislature has as a clear objective as clean production sources and lower the cost of the luz. A path that has been evidenced, according to her, in the draft Law to approve the National Fund for the Sustainability of the Electricity System (FNSSE).
Sharing a conversation with José Bogás, Ribera affirmed that, despite what happened these weeks, the operation of the market allows “very low prices when there are scenarios of a lot of wind and we see negative prices or close to zero“.
Another of the fronts that has been discussed these days is the possibility of lowering taxes, which must be remembered that it represents 40% of the total regulated rate. “Taxation is complex and is part of our pending work, energy and environmental taxation must be updated“, says the vice president.
The fourth vice president of the Government insisted on her comment of “a few euros.” Ribera explained to those present that the energy rebound these days will mean between “four and 10 euros more “ of the bill for January compared to December, although he acknowledged that paying more is something that “no one likes.”
