The president of the association (AEGE) , José Antonio Jainaga , has argued that the electricity price is hindering industry decarbonization by narrowing reducing the available cash flows for investments.
“Our model for setting electricity (prices) is obsolete. We are making progress in the renewable energy, but current electricity prices are at the highest level in history”, he assured in a forum organized by AEGE, before recalling that the industry needs “a competitive energy price to boost the ecological transition”.
“From AEGE we demand a smooth and fair transition, in which electricity price is prevented from having an impact on our future. We need a strong industry and it will only be possible if we take advantage of decarbonization opportunities and the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan”, he stated.
