Italy: domestic electricity consumption 2007-2018

In 2017, the total consumption of electricity for domestic use amounted to 65,490.7 gigawatt hours in Italy. The level of consumption among householders fluctuated over time. It increased between 2007 and 2011, when it peaked at 70,140.4 gigawatt hours. Thereafter, it gradually decreased – even though not steadily – until 2017.  

Electricity price and consumption

The price of electricity for householders increased by 7.6 percent between the third and the fourth quarter of 2018. In the same period of the previous year, the price decreased by 1.1 percent. It may be assumed that Italians are relatively aware of electricity costs and consumption. A survey conducted among householders in 2018 revealed that 40 percent of respondents knew both the cost of electricity and the level of consumption , whereas 31 percent of them were only aware of the cost. Lastly, almost one third of interviewees had no clue about neither the amount of electricity they consumed nor about the cost of it.   

Energy saving among Italians

On the other hand, Italians seem to be very much aware of the benefits that energy saving can bring to the environment. In fact, this is one of the environmental topics Italians feel more informed and committed about. Furthermore, a remarkable share of Italians has the habit to put in place energy efficiency measures in their everyday life.
