EU Energy History
For a thorough understanding and an in-depth view on retail prices for energy in European countries, there is a great tool available from Europe’s Energy Portal, called ‘EU Energy History’. This tool reveals exactly how much is paid for Natural Gas and Electricity by consumers from the member states of the European Union.
All price data is in Euro currency, making it convenient to compare prices between countries. The data format is Microsoft Excel®, by default. Alternative formats are optional.
Industry Leading Data
What makes this price data unique and sought after is the fact that Europe's Energy Portal takes a 'real-life' approach towards data collecting. While many researchers depend on energy agencies and utilities to provide the raw data input for their reports, Europe’s Energy Portal harnesses the strength of a vast community of real consumers, end-users, to feed its analysis.
Today, some of the world’s top energy companies and consultancies highly value our historical price data for energy.
Europe’s Energy Portal works with a vast pool of domestic and industrial consumers who are respondents for the EnergyEdge data input and processing software. Between EnergyEdge and the reported price data there are analysts to check and ground the data. More on methodology.
