Joint statement on regulated retail prices

WindEurope and other associations from the power sector call on the European Parliament and the Council to phase out regulated prices as part of the ongoing reform of the Electricity Directive. Enabling consumers to base their decisions during scarcity periods on market price signals is essential to further develop demand response and drive a cost-effective integration of renewables into the power system.

The persistence of regulated electricity tariffs is one the reason why consumers have not fully benefited from the downward trend that wind power produces on the wholesale market. The future electricity market design should seek for an increased link between wholesale prices and retail prices in order to guarantee such pass-through effect to consumers.
