ERSE.  The tariff offer for a light "oxygen cylinder" from January.

“TWe have a cyclical problem in terms of prices in the wholesale electricity and natural gas market. The electricity tariff proposal is an oxygen cylinder that will solve the problem from January, but we have to do it, ”thought Pedro Verdello at the parliamentary hearings.

Still a member of the Board of Directors of the Energy Services Regulatory Authority (ERSE), he was elected head of the energy sector regulator, succeeding Maria Cristina Portugal, who died on September 8.

According to the tariff proposal for domestic electricity consumers in the regulated market, presented on Friday, the electricity price is expected to rise by 0.2% next year compared to the current year average, but – if we consider two intermediate increases. – The proposed electricity price will decrease by 3.4%.

However, given the rise in energy prices in the wholesale market, ERSE approved on Monday an emergency package for the electricity and gas sectors to mitigate the negative impact of this growth.

“To protect consumers as well as reduce systemic risk, this package of measures, which we believe will solve the problem in the short term, has been proposed in a transparent manner,” the president-designate said.

Some of the emergency measures are part of the so-called “toolbox” approved by the European Commission, with possible measures that EU member states can take to facilitate assistance to citizens at a time when electricity and gas prices are peaking, the official said.

Answering the question about the control over the fuel sales margin, the legislative initiative of the government to establish restrictions for them, Pedro Verdello stressed that “the regulation must comply with the law.”

“He approved the legislation, this control and this monitoring. [pela ERSE] this will need to be done and, of course, if an inadequate margin is found, beyond what is acceptable, legal mechanisms will be put in place, ”he said.

On Monday, the environment minister said the government “needs” to be able to “push the limits” of fuel sales to counter rising prices, despite the lack of “any room” to do so. so.

“With regard to fuel, it is primarily about ensuring issues of fairness, and therefore it has not yet been published or made public, but, according to the government, it is really necessary to act on the marginal basis, not only in the field of marketing, the gas pump, but from all of the parties – the many actors that exist throughout the entire process, ”said the Minister of Environment and Climate.

On October 8, the Assembly of the Republic approved the final text of the government bill, which allows setting maximum market margins for simple fuels and bottled liquefied petroleum gas.
