Abstract: Energy price comparisons to illustrate energy-related impacts on industrial competitiveness have to be interpreted with caution. Energy unit costs are a better indicator for industrial competitiveness, as developments in energy intensity are taken into account. An international comparison based on energy unit cost shows that the manufacturing sector in Germany has moderate energy costs relative to the EU27 and other important competitors. This result, however, does not hold for all subsectors within the manufacturing sector and for all energy carriers. Moreover, for a complete assessment of industrial competitiveness, additional (cost) indicators have to be included. Copyright ZBW and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2015
