Following a surge that began before the war in Ukraine, electricity and gas bills in Greece saw a decrease in the latter half of 2023, offering some respite to consumers.

Eurostat data reveals that average household electricity prices decreased slightly to €28.5 per 100 kWh compared to the first half of 2023 (€29.4 per 100 kWh), although they remained higher than in the second half of 2022.

Similarly, average gas prices for households decreased to €11.3 per 100 kWh in the latter half of 2023, down from €11.9 per 100 kWh in the first half of the same year. This downward trend was also reflected in non-household consumer prices, signalling improved conditions for the industry.
