This activity includes selling energy in energy markets, as well as the sale of value-added products and services (VAPS) to customers. The sale of energy is a deregulated activity in Spain and Portugal.
Our sales activity focuses on electricity, gas and value-added products and services (VAPS).
Sales to customers in the deregulated market
Free market distributors freely agree tariffs with customers to best meet their requirements.
In 2015, we had over five million customers in the deregulated market, which amounts to an 11.9% increase compared with the year before; of these, 4.2 million are in the peninsular market, 692,689 in Non-Peninsular Territories (NPT) and 117,468 in European deregulated markets outside of Spain. We sold a total of 77,965 GWh to these customers in 2015, a 0.8% increase over 2014.
Sales in the Spanish deregulated market accounted for more than €8,425 million, up by €260 million compared to the year before, as a result of the increase in the average sales price and in the number of customers.
In turn, sales to customers in European deregulated markets outside of Spain reached €987 million, up by €61 million from 2014.
Sales at regulated prices
Authorised Distributors offer customers regulated tariffs. At Endesa, our Authorised Distributor is Endesa Energía XXI.
In 2015, we sold 14,934 GWh to customers at regulated prices (9.8% less than in 2014).
These sales generated revenue of €2,885 million in 2015, down 5.3% in year-over-year terms, as the fall in physical sales resulting from a decrease in the number of customers at regulated prices (-9.5%) and the increased cost of energy were not offset by the higher average sales price.
