Portugal has 6th most expensive electricity in EU

Data released on Tuesday by the European Union statistics office Eurostat shows that Portugal has the 6th most expensive electricity in the EU.

And when it comes to the price of gas, the same research found Portugal takes 4th position. According to the findings, only citizens of Denmark, Germany, Belgium, Spain and Ireland have a higher electricity bill than the Portuguese, with the cost of electricity per kW / hour in Portugal being fixed at 22.46 cents in the second half of this year. The price of gas is among the most expensive in the EU, surpassed only by Denmark, Sweden and the Netherlands.


Portugal shouldn't worry. If they follow up with their plans of further replacing fossile fuels with renewables then they will end up at position 1 of the ranking.
