Changes in the price of electricity and gas are influenced by the costs of procurement of the raw material, expenditure for system charges, transportation tariffs and meter management. These variations may concern both customers served under protection and those on the free market.

To find out more and explore all the items on the Enel Energia bill, consult the pages how to read the electricity bill and how to read the gas bill.

Update of electricity and gas tariffs for customers on the protected market

The Regulatory Authority for Energy, Networks and the Environment (ARERA) publishes the update of the prices for customers served under protection:

  • quarterly for electricity (from 1 April 2023 only for domestic customers);
  • monthly for gas, from October 2022 the ARERA modified the mechanism for defining the gas protection price, indexing it to the monthly changes in the wholesale market (PSV), this makes bills more responsive to changes in market prices compared to the previous quarterly mechanism.

The other expense items, which fall within the expenditure for energy/gas, the transport and management of the meter and the system charges, are applied according to what is defined, published and periodically updated by the 'ARERA. Similarly, VAT and taxes are applied and possibly updated in accordance with current legislation.

For more information, consult the article on the trend of the ARERA economic conditions.

Update of electricity and gas prices for customers on the free market

Unlike customers served under protection, where the price of electricity and gas is determined by ARERA, on the free market the seller can offer:

  • fixed-price offers, the price of the energy/gas raw material component and the marketing and sales consideration (CCV Luce or CCV Gas) remain blocked for the entire duration of the offer; li>
  • variable price offers (indexed), the price of the energy component or the gas raw material is influenced by the trend in the wholesale price of the energy/gas raw material (average monthly change) , to which the marketing and sale fee (CCV electricity or CCV gas) is added in any case.

For electricity offers, the reference index is the PUN (Single National Price), i.e. the wholesale reference price of electricity. 

For gas offers the reference index is the PSV (Virtual Exchange Point) place where the exchange or sale of natural gas, i.e. the meeting point between gas supply and demand in Italy. 

The other expense items (which fall within the expense for the energy/gas material other than the price of the energy component or the gas raw material and the marketing and sales consideration, the cost of transport and management of the meter and expenditure for system charges) are applied in accordance with what is defined, published and periodically updated by ARERA. Similarly, VAT and taxes are applied and possibly updated in accordance with current legislation.
