The operator of the Iberian Energy Market (OMIE) forecasts that the cost of energy on the wholesale market, often known as the “pool,” would be set at €61.79/MWh the day after tomorrow’s auction.
On Monday, the hours between 3 and 4 p.m. will have the lowest cost of electricity at €19.20/MWh, while the hours between 8 and 9 p.m. will have the highest cost of electricity at €165.33/MWh.
For the twenty-first day in a row, compensation for gas firms in the amount of 0 €/MWh has been applied to this pool pricing.

On Tuesday, March 28, the Council of Ministers gave their approval for the extension of the Iberian exception. If the aforementioned framework is likewise extended, it is not impossible that the terms of the arrangement may be prolonged for a longer period of time.
