The World Energy Markets Observatory highlights the wide disparity in retail energy prices in Europe. Players’ profitability is under pressure, suffering both from the impact of wholesale price hikes and high volatility in selling prices to end consumers. Although Europe’s sixteen largest energy suppliers benefited from a significant increase in turnover (+47% compared to 2020) last year, their gross operating margin (Ebitda margin) deteriorated from 20.2% to 19.6%. Those forced to purchase electricity in the market had to pay for these additional volumes at a much higher price than the already established selling price level and therefore saw their margins deteriorate.

Faced with low availability of its nuclear fleet, EDF, re-nationalised, should make annual losses of €29 billion in 2022. Engie is doing better because it managed to reduce Russian gas imports in the first half while benefiting from higher electricity prices. and greater exposure to renewable resources.
