As many of you know, the Europe is now facing to an energy crunch. In 2021 the electricity has increased from €28 per MWh in the beginning to €160+ per MWh in late 2021. Every hosting/servers provider is affected by the energy price increase. European Networks company is affected too. We still are trying to keep the same level of prices in all possible ways.
According to levels at national energy exchanges and European platform EEX, wholesale prices of electricity jumped to new highs. For December 2021, the price is at over EUR 400 per MWh for France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, Italy and Slovakia. In Estonia we have records too.
Until now we have been able to protect you from the price increase. But currently we have an impact to our business, all data center providers have announced to us a substantial increase of electricity rates in 2022, effective January 1, 2022. As a result, we are passing this price increase to all servers fees.
