The cost of electrical energy ( in Germany )




And here are some cost figures from "bild der wissenschaft" about electrical energy in Germany:

. 1.5 - 2.5 euro cent does it cost to produce 1 kilowatt-hour of electrical power using a depreciated nuclear plant
. 7 euro cent does it cost to produce 1 kilowatt-hour of electrical power harvesting wind energy
. 20 - 30 euro cent does it cost to produce 1 kilowatt-hour of electrical power using photovoltaic systems. Of course it is expected this cost to go down while the cost of using fossil fuels will go up.
. 4 - 5 euro cent is the price of 1 kilo-watt hour of electrical power ( coming from a coal or nuclear plant ) on the European electrical power exchange market
. 24 euro cent is what a German household ( including mine ) pays for 1 kilowatt-hour of electrical power.
. 12 euro cent is the price for the industry
. 7 euro cent is the price for "heavy" user ( I believe for instance the steel industry would fall into this category )

On a slightly off topic note. How come the german economy is doing badly? I suspect this is the euro's doing. I mean... the vast engineering industry for one thing - you were practically propping up the entire currency at one stage.

Very interesting breakdown, amagard. I have no idea of the breakdown here in the US probably would vary widely depending on who runs. I do know I pay 17 US cents per kilowatt with all the BS fees and tax charged.

Josso, I actually don't think the German economy is doing that bad. Not that I heard of so far.
With the challenges in Greece the entire EU of course is struggling with the Euro ...

So, standready, sounds like electrical power is a bit cheaper in the US. How about in other countries ?

I see so the growth differences have probably been caused in all countries with the euro
