Bioenergy Energy Comparison

With the liberalized energy prices report the IDEA of December 17, the last natural gas data published in the BOE, and average data for electricity market, we make this comparison of energy costs. It is expected an overall increase in energy prices. The electricity will rise by the new energy tax that will end up impacting the customer electrical and tariff deficit. Fossil fuels, despite the crisis, remain high.
Solid biomass fuel has become the most competitive for the end user and price changes
