Why does the price of electricity vary so much?
The main cause of lhe price fluctuations is that the price of gas is undergoing 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.
