In Luxembourg, the price differences between the different suppliers can be quite large. For the consumption of a single person (1800kWh/year), the subscription can range from about 40€/month to more than 50€/month. By choosing the best offer, you could therefore save more than a hundred euros per year, which is not negligible. If there are more people in your household, the savings can be even greater.
Also, suppliers offer different features: some offer green energy contracts, others offer to invest part of your subscription in the development of renewable energy in Luxembourg (wind, solar).
It is therefore important to be aware of the different offers before making your choice. Don't hesitate to use the comparison tool at the top of this page to get an idea.
Since the beginning of 2022, electricity prices have been exploding in European wholesale markets. This is due to the fact that electricity production is mainly linked to the price of gas (which is used to produce electricity).
Some European countries have put in place schemes to lock in energy prices and protect consumers.
In Luxembourg, gas prices are expected to double in the winter of 2022-2023. As a result, electricity prices are also expected to rise sharply. However, the Luxembourg State should pay part of this increase.
To ensure that you save money and pay less for electricity, we recommend that you compare suppliers on the table above. Adopt the right gestures to reduce your consumption and lower your energy bill.
To determine the amount of your future energy billIt is important to know your consumption. The easiest way to do this is to look at your previous bills: you will get an idea of your annual consumption.
However, if you move to a new flat, or if your household grows, you can use the following benchmarks to determine your consumption:
These figures are of course Luxembourg averages:
There are two easy ways to reduce your electricity bill:
Here are some tips to help you reduce your consumption:
In Luxembourg, the kilowatt-hour rates vary greatly from one company to another. By switching to a better offer, you can save several dozen or even hundreds of euros on your energy contract.

The cheapest energy contracts start at €40/month for 1 person. Then you have to add about €10/month for each additional person in the household. So the cheapest contracts will cost about :
In Luxembourg, the cheapest subscriptions are grouped into 2 categories:
These are the ones that offer 100% green energy, directly from renewable energies. These subscriptions cost only a few euros more per month on the subscription and help finance the development of renewable energy in Luxembourg.
In Luxembourg, there are few suppliers. Among the main ones are :
Nevertheless, there are significant price differences between the contracts offered. The difference in price can be as much as €120 per year for a single person.
That's why we advise you to compare offers carefully before choosing a cheaper electricity supplier: you could save a lot of money, while enjoying the same quality of service!
Most suppliers offer options to invest in the development of renewable energy in Luxembourg. For a few extra cents or euros per month, the company commits to financing the development of new wind farms or solar panels. Comparing electricity contracts allows you to find out how committed the company is to the planet and the ecological transition.
If you wish to commit yourself to the ecological transition, you can opt for a more responsible contract, in line with your values. Your money will directly finance new renewable energy sources in the Grand Duchy!
On the European market, all countries import and export energy, thanks to interconnectors located at the borders between countries. It is therefore possible to find out what proportion of the electricity consumed in the Grand Duchy is renewable energy and what proportion is fossil energy. According to information fromelectricityMap at the time of writing:
That is why it is important to invest in the ecological transition by choosing a green 100% electricity contract. This will allow us to reduce our dependence on German energy, and to have a more renewable consumption.
You can do something for the planet by choosing an electricity supplier that donates part of your subscription to the development of renewable energy in Luxembourg.
Luxembourg has a number of power stations producing electricity, mainly from renewable sources. Among the Luxembourg power plants, there are :
However, these power plants do not cover all the needs of Luxembourgers: that is why we have to import more carbon-intensive energy from our European neighbours. So you cannot have 100% green and local electricity. It will necessarily be partly of European origin.
Two main companies offer green and renewable energy in Luxembourg:
Tesla, Hyundai, Volkswagen, BMW, Mercedes... Car manufacturers are bringing out more and more electric 100% models. Nevertheless, these cars consume a lot of energy: up to 2500kWh/year, that is 350€ to 500€ more on your annual bill.
By charging your electric car at home, you will consume the equivalent of the electricity consumption of a two-person household. It is therefore important to compare suppliers carefully to save money on charging your electric car.
By charging at home, you save money compared to charging at a public station or on the motorway. Count on between 5€ and 10€ for a full refill. However, this price varies according to 3 factors:
Unlike other European countries, There is no special offer for electric cars in Luxembourg: you will need to choose a standard contract and tell the supplier that you have an electric car, so that they can adapt :
Unless otherwise stated in your energy contract, the price per kWh consumed will be the same for all your uses: whether you are charging your car or cooking.
When you take out an electricity contract with a Luxembourg supplier, you can request an mKaart. This card will allow you to charge your Tesla, BMW, Volkswagen or any other electric model at the CHARGY public charging stations. These charging stations allow you to charge your vehicle quickly throughout the Grand Duchy.
Attention: The price of the kWh when CHARGY is recharged will be determined by your supplier. This price will be higher if you use a high-speed terminal SuperChargy. The price can be as high as €0.50/kWh for a charge at a public station, which represents almost 30 for a full charge on a Tesla Model 3. These prices are close to those charged at motorway service areas, so we advise you to top up at home whenever possible.

The cheapest supplier is SudStroum, which is a few cents per month ahead of Enovos on the cheapest subscriptions. Electris is in third place, with a more expensive offer than its competitors.
In 2022, we recommend choosing an affordable 100% green electricity offer, which also finances the development of renewable energy in Luxembourg. You can choose between SudStroum and Enovos: both companies offer relatively similar prices for their offers.
The price is the main component to consider when making a choice. However, some suppliers also offer advantages: such as green electricity, half of which comes from Luxembourg's renewable power stations. This advantage can be a factor in your decision, if protecting the planet is an important criterion for you.
The liberalisation of the energy market, adopted by Europe, allows any consumer to change energy supplier at any time. All you have to do is apply to the supplier of your choice. They will take care of the change.
There are 3 main electricity suppliers in Luxembourg: Enovos (the historical supplier), SudStroum and Electris. You can also subscribe to an offer from Leo Energy, but this supplier is owned by the Enovos group and offers the same rates. To make it easier to compare offers, we are therefore only displaying the offers of Enovos.
To compare the different electricity suppliers in Luxembourg, you need to compare the price per kWh consumed, as well as the origin of the electricity (renewable or not, European or Luxembourgish). You can easily analyse the 3 Luxembourg suppliers on this online comparison of the best electricity offers.
Enovos is an energy supplier: it markets electricity and gas supply contracts to Luxembourg customers. Creos is the grid operator: it ensures that the high-voltage lines and electricity transformers function properly.
Electricity prices are strongly linked to gas prices. As gas prices are rising in Luxembourg, it could be expected that electricity prices would increase significantly in the winter of 2022-2023. However, the Luxembourg government has decided, in a tripartite agreement, to freeze these prices in 2023 at their 2022 level.
If you heat your home with electric radiators, you can reduce the temperature in your home by one or two degrees. Each degree less saves 7% on your consumption and therefore on your bill. Don't forget to switch off your appliances on standby, turn off the lights in every room you leave and switch on your energy-consuming appliances (dishwasher, washing machine) at night, in order to benefit from the "off-peak" rate, if you have chosen this option with your energy supplier.
The price per kWh differs from one supplier to another. Some suppliers are cheaper than others. To reduce your electricity bill, you can compare them on the comparison table above. Once you have found the cheapest supplier, don't hesitate to apply for a subscription directly on their website.
