2013, a turning
point.

Dear Consumer
To know the reality of the companies and the interests that exist in the current energy sector, it is enough to know that after the release of the Spanish electricity sector or system of 1997 and covered by law 54/1997, as a transposition of the European directive 96 / 92CE of December 19, 1996 for the liberation of the electricity market in Spain, a law that has been amended several times with laws 53/2002, 24/2005 and 17/2007, although finally the new law 24/2013 is what keeps The current structure of the sector.

From this previous application, the four major areas of the sector called Generation, Transportation, Distribution and Marketing were established, by which new independent marketers such as NEXT and the figure of the Renewable Energy Cooperatives have been allowed to enter the Commercialization

Generation or Production

Within the Generation or Production, the energies hitherto used are Nuclear, Coal, Hydraulic, Combined Cycle, Cogeneration and others, being the new consumption energies directed towards Wind, Photovoltaic Solar, Solar Thermal and Renewable Thermal.

The Generaction or Production companies come from the beginning and therefore from the first state or private companies that since the beginning of the use of energy have monopolized the sector, specifically between 5 companies controlled 65% of the energy consumed by Spain and still as Owners maintain control of much of the energy production consumed by this country, although it is sensible to think about how expensive it would be to find new mines, swamps, nuclear power plants and what it would cost for a new company to build and put them into operation, in addition to what they pollute. What makes us understand that here there is a wall of power that the consumer cannot control.

Transport

The Spanish Transport or Red Eléctrica, which is known as high voltage networks, since they are responsible for transporting energy from the generation or production plant to the entrance of the main consumption centers (areas or cities) of the country.

This responsibility is understandable that it has the character of basic service and survival of the population, so that the government manages it under a monopoly regime with Red Eléctrica Española as operator of the service and responsible for its proper functioning to guarantee the supply to any point of Spain, so it is understood that the consumer does not reach their control.

Distribution

The Distribution is responsible for collecting energy from the entrance of the large residential centers or cities to take it through less visual installations to the point of supply of consumers in their homes, businesses, public buildings, etc.

Companies that also in number of 5 well-known are responsible with the same level of responsibility and adjudication as the previous Spanish Electricity Network, to guarantee the continuous supply, repair their breakdowns and read the counters of just over 27 million consumers in Spain , so it is also understandable that the consumer does not perceive their control.

Comercialization

Spain is a country with a shortage of its own energy, so it is important to assess the fate we have of being able to produce part of what we need here, along with the responsibility of transporting it and distributing it to homes and businesses as far as they are, being an essential need service for the citizen.

It is true that the citizen or consumer has no control over the production, transport and distribution of energy, being the companies that control said services, the only ones responsible for the arrival of energy from the beginning of the same more than a century ago , and therefore of the prices that have been paid for it.

It is for all the above, that when there is a power outage or poor quality of it with micro cuts or other anomalies, it is always the responsibility of the companies awarded the production, transport or distribution services, which is why the law has regulated a change that allows to compensate the consumer with what we could call his “defender”, creating the Marketing .

The Marketers are Services companies that have the knowledge of market prices, legal authorization for the purchase of energy and sufficient margin to offer a better price based on energy efficiency first, but are required to use the same network of transport and distribution that exist in Spain, as it is known that occurs in the mobile sector with the telephone network of Spain, which all other telephone companies have to use.

The marketers to be able to grow in the market must not only provide economic savings, since the evolution of the market and consumers will force them to expand their services to add value, facilitating the interlocution between their distribution company and their marketer or billing company in case of any breakdown. of the network or its installation, the technical capacity to study its real consumption throughout the year in the different cold and heat stations, carry out studies of real consumption by household appliances, people and hours of use to advise the best rate at all times or changes of technologies such as LEDs and others ..., so that the evolution and legalization of digital technologies have arrived, to be able to control your home automation online from our control center depending on your situation such as holidays, weekend, increase of guests or summer or winter time, adapt consumption to your particular needs in real time… That will end up coming.

And these are us, NEXT. The authorized marketer next to you with the sole objective of "Defend" your energy expenditure preferably 100% renewable, compared to the large and powerful companies in the sector.
