Electricity price today April 14 by the hour: when is it cheaper and when is it more expensive

The price of electricity in the wholesale market continues to skyrocket despite attempts to stop the escalation in prices. The Government battles in the European Union to put limits on gas prices, the raw material that causes the high price of electricity. Natural gas is used in combined cycle plants, those that produce a small amount of the electricity that Spaniards consume every day, but that have very high operating costs that end up being passed on to consumers.

Meanwhile, life goes on and the price of electricity remains at extremely high levels compared to those of the same date in 2021. According to data from OMIE, the regulator in Spain and Portugal, for this Thursday, April 14, the price of electricity will be 220.76 euros/MWh, 220% more than a year ago, when the price was 68 euros/MWh.

Why does the price of electricity vary so much?

The main cause of the price fluctuations is that the price of gas is experiencing strong increases and its use is essential for the production of energy in the so-called combined cycle plants. Thus, any impact on the price of gas has an almost immediate impact on the price of electricity.

The current context does not help, precisely, to contain the price of gas. Russia is one of the largest suppliers of gas on the planet and the influence of the war in Ukraine has been felt in half the world, including Spain.
