Ostrom, along with every other provider, is simply reflecting the current energy pricing landscape. The following chart shows, how the price of electricity has changed within a year. While the average price/kWh was still 7,4 cents in June 2021, one year later it was priced at about 22 cents – an increase of 195%.
One of the main reasons for the rising electricity prices is the reduced amount of gas deliveries of only 20% of the maximum capacity through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline. Why the amount of gas deliveries is related to the price of electricity can be read here.
