  • Tariff deficit
    The difference between the cost of producing electricity and the price the consumer pays. In Spain, the sale of electricity is regulated by official tariffs that do not reflect the real cost of supply; the cost of raw materials such as natural gas, oil and coal have increased spectacularly since 2004, to which is added the increase in environmental and production costs following the entry into force of CO2 emissions allowances. The tariffs, especially domestic, however, have not taken these increases into account. In July 2008, the Ministry of Industry calculated that, with the price levels in force, the electricity sector's accumulated debt would reach 26.9 billion euros in 2012 and account for 80% of its revenues.
    Spanish: Déficit tarifario
