Source: Eurostat (2019)
This chart presents the evolution of prices on the domestic market in France and the EU-28 average, with an electricity/gas comparison.
Unlike electricity, the price of natural gas for final household consumers in France follows the European trend.
The domestic price of electricity in France is one of the lowest in Europe because of its historic nuclear power strategy.
The domestic price for the natural gas MWh is lower than the electric MWh, mainly due to the yield differences all along the value chains.
