Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It seems unfair that smaller electricity consumers should be effectively subsidizing larger consumers but that is probably a function of political negotiating power.

It's protectionism/mercantilism. Charge the consumers and exempt the export earners (or avoid delocalising industry) by keeping their energy costs down. This is also why Europe's carbon pricing is dead (murder by shock doctrine).
