In the EU, the European Commission is considering introducing a cap on the price of inframarginal technologies producing electricity, with a levy applying to profits in excess of the cap. The levy would impact those technologies where large profits have been made, namely renewables, hydropower and nuclear and initial indications are that revenues would be capped at 200 euros per MWh of electricity. The Commission would like to see revenues generated from this go towards the most vulnerable citizens and businesses. We expect to see concrete plans published by the Commission next week. 59ce067264
