The Slovak government says the country’s electricity prices shouldn’t go up in the next year. Economy Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek said on June 5 that electricity producers and distributors have enough space to avoid increasing electricity prices.

Jahnátek said that producer prices for electricity in Slovakia amount to 38 percent of the EU average. But according to Eurostat, local electricity prices for consumers are between the second and the fifth highest in the EU. The Slovak market can wait until other more, developed countries, catch up with Slovakia in electricity prices, said the minister. SITA
