Electricity costs for Belgian industry remain higher than in neighboring countries (18/6/2014)
Electricity costs for Belgian industry remain significantly higher than in neighboring countries regardless of decreasing prices. In 2014 our industry will not regain competitiveness compared to its neighbors. This is Febeliec’s major conclusion of the update of the electricity prices benchmarking survey commissioned at Deloitte. Moreover, the uncertainty about the restart of nuclear plants Doel 3 and Tihange 2 have recently caused Belgian prices to rise high above those in the other countries, which severely threatens our competitiveness.
