There is room for electricity prices to fall in Slovakia, according to the chairman of the council of the Bureau for Regulation of Network Industries (ÚRSO), Jozef Holjenčík, who spoke to journalists on Tuesday, March 8.

There is room for electricity prices to fall in Slovakia, according to the chairman of the council of the Bureau for Regulation of Network Industries (ÚRSO), Jozef Holjenčík, who spoke to journalists on Tuesday, March 8.

However, ÚRSO is currently unable to carry out price regulation in line with EU legislation, as respective EU laws haven't yet been transposed into Slovakia’s legal framework, Holjenčík said, as reported by the TASR newswire. "Likewise, it isn't possible for the state authorities to fully decide on regulated energy prices, even if they apply pressure using a media campaign. It's not in line with European Community Regulations 72 and 73," Holjenčík said in response to repeated statements by politicians suggesting that ÚRSO is responsible for high energy prices in Slovakia. He added that energy prices could be re-assessed in early summer at the earliest.
