Spain’s interventionist measures in recent months aimed at reducing the effect of record wholesale energy prices on consumers’ electricity bills have temporarily increased regulatory risk perception in the sector. But they looked to be leaning towards local major utilities in the end, consultancy EKON said. Steven Taylor, a Director at EKON stated that «It is going in the utilities direction and obviously part of that is related with the EU. It is tilting toward the utilities,»
For EKON Director Kim Keats-Martinez, the initial uncertainties raised in the sector by the interventionist measures seem to have dissipated in recent weeks.
