Project description

The energy cost burden is communicated as a major competitiveness concern especially by energy intensive industries. This project provides a transparent, up-to-date index of sector-specific industrial unit energy costs. We update official statistical data using information on energy use and fuel prices and provide a fuel-specific breakdown of overall unit energy costs for each manufacturing sector.
