Comparison Of EU Electricity Prices
The More Renewable Energy The Higher The Costs Thanks To Government Energy Policies That Do Not Represent Best Interests of People They Represent.
By Paul Homewood
Seeing as how energy prices are a hot topic at the moment, I thought I would take a look at how the UK’s electricity prices compare with other EU states.
The data below is from the official EU Energy Portal, and are based on May 2013 prices for domestic users.
In the graph below, I have put all the newer accession, mainly East European, states to the left side. It is apparent, when doing this, that their prices are consistently lower. (Cyprus and Malta are much higher, for obvious reasons.) Presumably a factor in this is that they still use much of old fossil fuel power plants left over from Soviet days.
