Germany: industry prices of natural gas 2008-2018 German industrial consumers have seen a reduction in the price of natural gas since 2008. Prices fell from 4.72 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh) in 2008, to 3.17 euro cents per kWh in 2018, for users with an annual consumption of 10,000 gigajoules (GJ) to 99,999 GJ.

Natural gas in Germany

Natural gas plays a significant role in the German energy mix. As of 2017, the country generated 13.3 percent of their energy using natural gas as the primary fuel source, up from 9.7 percent in 2014. In 2017, this generated 86.7 billion kWh of energy.

Natural gas production has reduced considerably in Germany over the past decade. In 2008, Germany produced 13.6 billion cubic meters of gas, a volume that would eventually sink to 5.5 billion cubic meters by 2018. Consumption has increased overall since 2014, rising from 73.9 billion cubic meters in 2014 to reach 88.3 billion cubic meters by 2018.

Natural gas price for households

While industrial users have enjoyed a reduction in their natural gas bills, the same can not be said for German households. In the first half of 2010, consumers were paying 5.65 euro cents per kWh. While there has been a reduction in prices since 2013, households in Germany were still paying 6.08 cents per kWh for natural gas as of the first half of 2018.
