REPORT FROM THE COMMISSION TO THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT, THE COUNCIL, THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL COMMITTEE AND THE COMMITTEE OF THE REGIONS Energy prices and costs in Europe

1. The Energy prices and costs in Europe report (herein ‘the report’) follows on from the European Commission’s previous reports on energy prices and costs in 2014 and 2016. Along with the accompanying staff working document, it presents detailed data and analyses of trends in energy (electricity, gas and oil products) prices and costs for households and industry in the EU as a whole, in Member States, and in EU trading partners. It also examines data on energy taxation, revenues, and subsides. Using this analysis, it makes assessments on competition and the producer/consumer relationships in energy markets; the impact on fuel poverty, industrial competitiveness, and the efficiency of energy market design; and the efficacy of subsidy regimes, the consequences for national budgets, and the needs for investment. The report is also accompanied by two external studies by Trinomics and the Centre for European Policy Studies/Ecofys which were used to inform its final findings.
