While regulated sales tariffs (TRV) for gas have fallen by 25% since 2019, a new period of inflation is approaching. On a proposal from the Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE), the government submitted a draft order in order to carry out what is called a “smoothing”. Supposed to decrease by 5.1% in July according to the usual calculation methods, gas TRVs ultimately only fell by 0.5%. The interest is simple: flatten the roller coaster of the TRV curve as much as possible, on the downside as well as on the upside. With the recovery in gas prices, TRVs should in fact have increased by 3%, then by 6% in October and November 2020. The smoothing process will allow the increase to be considerably reduced, to 0.9 and 1, respectively, 7%. Despite this, the forecast increase will be steady until February 2021 to reach 6% in total.

In order to prevent the energy bill from increasing too much in the coming months, however, there is a simple way called fixed tariffs. They are, along with TRVs and indexed offers, the third major type of energy contract for individuals. They prevent billing variations by setting the prices per kilowatt hour (kWh) when the contract is taken out. If previously, customers had to agree to pay a kilowatt hour more expensive than that of the TRV for this type of contract, market competition has made it possible to obtain prices that are much more affordable for the customer. At Eni or Vattenfall, the kWh is thus billed between 8 and 13% less than that of Engie, while being non-binding.

The savings are therefore made from the start, but also during the contract. While gas prices will rise, the French who have subscribed to the offer will be sheltered, with a stable provisional budget. In order to properly measure the extent of the savings, Capital called on the energy comparator Olawatt. This
