This item is open for comments. See the comments
The graph characterizes the average consumption per households (at normal climate) in relation to the evolution of prices and incomes. The income per households for EU-27 as a whole is the sum of the 27 EU countries based on national Odyssee data.
Average energy prices for households for EU-27 as a whole is calculated by weighting the prices of 3 products consumed by households (electricity, gas and heating oil) by their corresponding final energy consumption. The electricity prices are given by Eurostat and corresponds to a reference consumer (standard dwelling of 100 m2, with an average consumption of 7500 kWh); for gas, the average prices corresponds to an annual consumption of 16.74 GJ for households; for heating oil, the average price is given for annual deliveries of less than 24 000 tonnes for households.
