Energy: Consumption slows down, electricity prices for families at the highest levels over the last 10 years

In the third quarter of 2018, electricity prices for Italian households reached the peak of the decade, while there were double-digit increases (+ 10%) for medium-sized companies. In addition, energy consumption slowed down: + 1% as compared with + 3.2% in the first half of the year. This is according to data provided by the ENEA Energy System Quarterly Analysis , which reports a 5% decline in the index ISPRED [1], the eighth consecutive quarterly deterioration.
