ZEW Energy Market Barometer: Current Energy Policy Is too Fixated on the Distribution of Energy Cost

The German energy policy is too fixated on the question how households and companies can be relieved from increasing energy costs. Instead, improving cost-efficiency in terms of energy supply and energy use would be a starting point to mitigate growing energy costs and to promote climate protection. These are the findings of the ZEW Energy Market Barometer, a semi-annual survey among some 200 experts from the energy economy conducted by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW). read more

ZEW Energy Market Barometer - Thresholds for Assessing Energy Poverty

Rising energy prices burden low income households. These households may have a tough time paying for their energy consumption in the near future. They will have to cut energy consumption or shift household expenditures. According to energy experts, energy costs reach a critical level when they eat up about ten per cent of the disposable household income. These are the findings of the biannual ZEW Energy Market Barometer, a survey among experts from the energy sector conducted by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW). read more

ZEW Energy Market Barometer - High Level of Corruption Destabilises Supply Relationships for Oil and Gas

For Germany as well as for other industrial countries, an undisturbed supply of crude oil and natural gas is of great importance. Researchers of the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) surveyed some 200 experts from the energy industry in Germany who highlighted aspects perceived as guaranteeing an undisturbed supply: long-existing supply relationships with countries exporting crude oil and natural gas, and a high degree of economic development within these countries. A destabilising effect, however, is a high level of corruption in the supplying country’s administration and economy. This is the assessment of the current ZEW Energy Market Barometer. Every six months, about 200 experts from the energy industry are surveyed on current topics for the ZEW Energy Market Barometer. read more

ZEW Survey Among Energy Market Experts - Release of Pressure on Energy Prices is Only Short-Lived

Until the end of 2012, major costumers in Germany probably do not have to expect further increases in energy prices. The picture, however, changes if looking on a five-year time horizon. Viewed from this mid-term perspective, industrial companies, commercial enterprises, municipalities, and other end consumers, which have a high demand of electricity, fossil oil, natural gas, and coal will have to prepare themselves for a significant increase in prices. This is the finding of a survey of the ZEW Energy Market Barometer among about 200 experts from the energy industry and the scientific world. They were interviewed in mid-2012 on the short-term and long-term trends with energy prices for major costumers. read more

ZEW Energy Market Barometer - Major Customers Can Expect Rather Stable Energy Prices Until Mid-2012

Major customers do not have to fear an increase of energy prices until mid-2012. But, within the horizon of five years, a rise in energy prices for industrial companies, larger industrial units, municipalities, and other final customers who demand electricity, oil, natural gas, and coal on a large scale is almost certain. These are the findings of a survey by the ZEW Energy Market Barometer among 200 experts from the energy sector, who have been asked to give an assessment on the short- and medium-term trends of energy prices for major customers at the end of 2011. read more

ZEW Survey Among Energy Experts - Proposed "Power Shut-Down Regulation" Is of Limited Value - The Expansion of the Power Grid Is More Important

Experts consider the current plan of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) to regulate "load shedding" major consumers in the power grid a step in the right direction, yet they regard the further expansion of the power grid as the most important measure for safeguarding electricity supply. This is a key finding of the recent ZEW Energy Market Barometer, a biannual survey of approx. 200 experts in the energy industry. read more

Lion’s Share at Profits in Billions From Lifetime Extension of Nuclear Power Plants Will Remain With Operators

Operators of nuclear power plants would receive profits in billions, if the lifetime of nuclear power plants were extended. The German government expects to get their share from these extra profits. However, that is not very likely. These are the findings of the latest ZEW Energy Market Barometer conducted in May 2010. The Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) conducts the Energy Market Barometer every six months and surveys some 200 energy experts from research and practise about their opinion on the development on the energy markets. read more

ZEW Energy Market Barometer: Energy Prices at Standstill Until Mid 2010 – Medium-Term Increase of Prices Expected

Energy wholesale, industrial firms and larger business enterprises, local authorities and other ultimate consumers with high energy needs can expect stable energy prices in Germany until mid 2010. In the next five years, the wholesale customers have to expect increasing prices for oil, coal, gas and electricity. Despite the economic crisis, the long-term trend towards increasing energy prices is continuing. These are the findings of the latest ZEW Energy Market Barometer. The Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW), Mannheim, conducts a survey about the developments on the energy markets among around 200 energy market experts from research and industry. read more

ZEW Energy Market Barometer - Climate Change Causes Blackouts in European Power Stations

In the face of climate change, power stations in Europe are likely to increasingly reduce their energy production in the future. On the basis of global warming, which also causes heat waves and droughts in Europe during the summer, especially atomic power plants will be forced to curb electricity production. At this point, however, the question whether the loss of production will impair the security of power supply cannot be clearly answered. This is the result of the latest ZEW Energy Market Barometer survey among around 200 energy market experts from science and industry, which is conducted by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) on a biannual basis. read more

ZEW Energiemarktbarometer (Energy Market Barometer) - Economic Crisis Only Temporarily Deflating Increase In Energy Prices In Germany

The economic crisis continues to keep the prices at the German energy markets at bay. Prices for electricity, raw oil, gas and coal are going to remain the same in the next six months. This is good news for firms and consumers in Germany. However, prices for these energy carriers are expected to rise in the next five years. These are the findings of the latest ZEW Energy Market Barometer, which surveys around 200 energy market experts and is conducted by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) every six months. read more

ZEW Energy Market Barometer - Economic Crisis Abruptly Stops a Further Rise in Energy Prices in Germany

The ongoing recession and the declining industrial production coming along with it have, for the time being, ended the rise in energy prices in Germany. The prices for electricity, crude oil and coal will stagnate in the coming six months. The price for natural gas will even fall by mid-year. However, for the coming five years prices for electricity, oil, coal and gas are likely to rise again. These are the findings of the latest ZEW Energy Market Barometer conducted end 2008 among 200 energy experts from academia and industry about the development on the energy markets. read more

ZEW Energy Market Barometer – The security of natural gas supply will worsen over the mid-term

The dispute between Russia, a gas producer, and the Ukraine, a transit country for gas delivery, has had consequences in particular for Eastern European EU member states, and has shifted energy security to the forefront of political concern in Europe. The ZEW Energy Market Barometer is a survey of energy-market experts conducted on a biannual basis by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW). In November and December of 2008, the participating experts were asked to assess supply security with regard to various energy sources. "Over the mid-term a worsening of supply security for gas and oil is to be expected. Experts anticipate that the current dispute over natural gas supplies will not have a dramatic impact on Germany. The country should take heed of recent events, however, and boost energy security by increasing the use of liquefied natural gas and by investing in new pipelines and storage reservoirs", says Dr Andreas Löschel, head of the ZEW-research department "Environmental and Resource Economics, Environmental Management". read more

ZEW Energy Market Barometer – Decreasing Energy Security in Europe Expected

According to energy market experts, the energy security in Europe will decrease over the next ten years. Especially the energy security through crude oil is assessed pessimistically. Regarding the question on energy security through oil, over 52 per cent of the experts indicate that the energy security in Europe through this energy source will decrease over the next ten years. Whereas only about three per cent believe in an increasing energy security through oil and about 45 per cent expect an unmodified situation. But also the energy security through natural gas and electricity is assessed with criticism by the experts. Only with carbon, there are as many experts expecting decreasing energy security as there are experts expecting increasing energy security over the next ten years. These are the results of a survey conducted by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW)in Mannheim, Germany in the course of the ZEW Energy Market Barometer which every six months interviews 200 energy market experts on the developments on the energy markets. read more

The ZEW Energiemarktbarometer - Energy Price Situation Remains Tense

Energy experts expect rising prices for natural gas, coal, electricity and crude oil over the next six months. The vast majority of them estimate that even in the long term (over the coming five years), the costs of those energy sources will grow. Only a small minority forecasts that energy prices will fall. This is the result of the recent ZEW Energiemarktbarometer (Energy Market Barometer), a biannual survey among 200 energy market experts carried out by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW). read more

ZEW Energy Market Barometer: German Energy Policy Does Not Focus Sufficiently on Economic Efficiency and Security of Supply

According to market experts, German energy policy focuses too strongly on environmental compatibility, while a significantly lower priority is given to other important objectives, such as an energy supply at low costs or security of supply. This is the finding of the current ZEW Energiemarktbarometer (Energy Market Barometer), a survey of the energy industry in Germany, which is conducted by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW), Mannheim, and comprises the expectations of more than 200 experts, who are regularly asked for their opinion on energy economic issues. read more

ZEW Energy Market Barometer: Energy Prices Continue to Increase – Short-Term Relaxation in Oil Price

During the past months, the oil price reached new weekly record highs. For the coming six months, the situation in the crude oil market is going to stabilise, while a further price increase in natural gas is expected. This is the opinion of the majority of the 200 energy market experts surveyed by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW). Every six months, the ZEW-survey reveals their assessment of the situation in the energy markets. On a five years time horizon, the survey participants expect further increasing prices, especially of natural gas and electricity, as well as coal and oil. read more

The ZEW Energiemarktbarometer – Experts do not Expect Ease of Energy Price Situation

The vast majority of the experts interviewed in the course of the ZEW Energiemarktbarometer (Energy Market Barometer) estimate that in the long term (over the coming five years) industry customers will have to pay more for electricity and that the prices for natural gas, crude oil and coal will rise as well. In the short term (over the next six months) most of the experts expect stagnating coal and gas prices whereas the share of those who forecast stagnating electricity and oil prices and the share of experts who forecast a price increase for those two energy sources, balance out one another. This is the result of the recent ZEW Energiemarktbarometer, a survey among more than 200 energy experts conducted by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) in Mannheim. read more

ZEWnews June 2007: Resistance against Reforms and its Psychological Causes

Politics is frequently faced with the problem that reforms, recommended by experts, are met with rejection by large parts of the population. The resistance against change often appears irrational. According to many experts, these changes are of indispensable necessity such as the increase in the statutory retirement age or measures to liberalise the labour market. Against this background, ZEW examined on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Finance the resistance against reforms that takes place on a psychological level and diverges from the assumption of homo oeconomicus' strict rationality. These findings are presented in the current ZEWnews edition of June 2007. read more

The ZEW Energy Market Barometer – Short-term Ease of Energy Price Situation, Long-term Price Increase

In the short term (i.e. in the coming six months), the majority of the experts interviewed in the course of the ZEW Energy Market Barometer expect stagnating energy prices. In the long-term (i.e. in the next five years) on the other hand, the majority estimates higher electricity prices for industrial clients as well as higher natural gas, crude oil and coal prices. These are the findings of the recent ZEW Energy Market Barometer, a survey among more than 200 energy experts conducted by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) in Mannheim. read more

ZEW Energy Market Barometer – National Champions Unnecessary

Politicians tend to favour the model of so-called 'national champions' to ensure the international competitiveness of German enterprises. With regard to the energy sector, this should be seen in the light of the fact that in other European countries, individual companies like EdF, a French quasi monopolist, hold larger market shares than the German companies do on the German market. However, this industrial policy approach to the German energy sector earns little approval from energy experts. read more

ZEW Energy Market Barometer – Experts Unperturbed by the Dependency on Russian Oil

Multiple concerns have recently been raised about how the European Union's energy supply is subject to the political mood in Russia due to import dependency. According to most experts interviewed for the ZEW Energy Market Barometer, however, the large imports of Russian oil are no cause for concern. Gas dependency is viewed more seriously. Still, the experts do not fear for the immediate supply security. read more
