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.
During 2016 we had almost five and a half million customers in the deregulated market, representing a 6.7% increase compared with the preceding year. Of these, 4.5 million are in the peninsular market, 744 thousand in Non-Peninsular Territories (NPT) and 174 thousand in European deregulated markets outside of Spain. We sold a total of 79,675 GWh to these customers in 2016, with a 2.2% increase on 2015.
Sales in the Spanish deregulated market reached 8,213 million Euros in 2016, which represents a drop of 2.5%. This is because the increase in physical units sold has not offset the drop in average sale prices to end customers. A trend that has also been noted in other European markets outside of Spain.
Sales at regulated prices
Authorised Distributors offer customers regulated tariffs. At Endesa, our Authorised Distributor is Endesa Energía XXI.
In 2016 we sold 13,815 GWh to customers under regulated prices (7.5% less than in 2015).
This figure constitutes revenues of 2,412 million Euros, 16.4% less than in 2015, as a result of the drop in physical sales and lower sale prices.
