WHITE PAPER: Unravelling the Real Story Behind European Power Demand

See the effects of recent economic events on electricity demand across Europe & what this shows about demand elasticity & power-to-GDP intensity 


Turbulent economic events over the last ten years have fundamentally reshaped the European electricity industry. While it is no surprise that electricity demand has reacted strongly to these changes, particularly in the industrial and commercial sectors, the response has by no means been uniform across countries like Germany, Spain, and Greece. The different responses from different countries illuminate details about their relative demand elasticity and the power-to-GDP intensity.

  • See how different European countries have responded to electricity demand changes and what this means about their relative demand elasticity
  • Clarify the true meaning of "power consumption." Does it include network losses?
  • Learn why the 2014 EU average cumulative power demand growth is below the 2007 level
