Energy: electricity cheaper in France than in most of Europe

Present on the 19/20 set, Friday October 1, François Beaudonnet’s journalist compares the prices of electricity between France and its many European neighbors.

Despite the rise in energy prices, France is one of the countries in Europe where electricity is the cheapest. “France is 19 cents per kilowatt-hour, in Germany it’s 30 cents per kilowatt-hour, 28 in Belgium, 23 in Spain, Italy and the United Kingdom”, reports the journalist François Beaudonnet, present on the set of 19/20 Friday October 1. This low cost of electricity is explained by the use of nuclear power, which is cheaper than renewable energies. However, there are some parts of Europe where electricity is available at a better price.

François Beaudonnet demonstrates that some European citizens spend even less money than the French on their electricity. “In Iceland, imagine, it’s 13 cents per kilowatt-hour, thanks to geothermal energy, hot water coming out of the ground. In Bulgaria, it’s 10 cents per kilowatt-hour”, he adds. A very small amount explained by the use of coal. A low cost of electricity price should not take place, “unless the State decides”, explains the journalist. In question, the numerous taxes on energy and the treatment of nuclear power plants, which are becoming aging.
