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.
