The new Energy Price Monitor displays the latest developments of the overall consumer prices for energy in Germany.
The index is published on the website of Agora Energiewende on a monthly basis. When it comes to climate policies, energy prices are one of the central economic drivers. They account for more then one tenth of the living costs. Nevertheless, there still is no generally accepted and easily accessible indicator to measure the development of energy prices. This prompted the European Climate Foundation (ECF) to develop an energy price monitor, which is based on official surveys. It observes and analyses the development of German households’ energy prices on a monthly basis.
