The ‘Iberian mechanism’, which came into force on June 15, limits the price of gas for electricity generation at an average of 48.8 euros per MWh for a period of twelve months, thus covering the next winter, a period in which energy prices are more expensive. Specifically, the ‘Iberian exception’ sets a path for natural gas to generate electricity from a price of 40 euros per MWh in the initial six months -until December 15-, and subsequently, a monthly increase of five euros per MWh until the end of the measure.
