Electricity prices for households in Denmark 2010-2019, semi-annually

The overall household price for electricity in Denmark decreased by approximately 1.6 euro cents per kilowatt hour between 2016 and 2019. Figures fell to 29.24 euro cents in the second half of 2019, the lowest price since 2011. Danish households spent the most per kilowatt-hour of electricity throughout Europe, ranking slightly above Germany.

High taxation and supply quality

Taxes make up the majority of the end-user price. In Copenhagen, energy taxes alone account for 42 percent of the total electricity price, with value-added tax accounting for a further 20 percent. This is by far the highest energy taxation in major European cities.
Whilst households in Denmark pay some of the highest electricity prices, electricity supply is ranked as one of the best in the world. In 2019, it was awarded an index score of 98.7 out of a possible 100. Fellow Nordic countries Finland and Iceland even reached 100 and tied with eight other countries as those with the greatest quality of electricity supply.
