The current electricity costs of energy-intensive industries in Germany

The electricity costs incurred by energy-intensive industries feature significantly in current discussions surrounding the transformation of the energy sector in Germany. A key problem relating to these discussions is that, although there have been a whole host of comparative statistics and analyses of industrial electricity prices in general, the parameters specific to the electricity cost burdens of the energy-intensive industries have not been sufficiently addressed, if at all. Against this background, this brief analysis provides a compact overview of prices and costs relevant to the energy-intensive industries, including the relevant privileges.
