EU-28: structure of residential end-user electricity prices in select cities 2019

The energy price constitutes the main share of the residential end-user electricity price in most of the selected European cities, with the exception of Copenhagen, Berlin, Brussels, Prague, Budapest and Lisbon. The distribution costs in the latest four cities retain the highest share of the residential electricity price breakdown.

Copenhagen and Berlin are exceptional cases among these cities. In the Danish city, energy commodity prices represents 19 percent, whereas energy taxes represents 42 percent of the residential end-user electricity price. Germany has been shifting its primary energy consumption, to increase the share of renewables. Therefore Berlin presents energy taxes higher than energy commodity prices, likely due to investments made in the energy transition.
