    Forget about investing in any company in Europe that uses a large quantity of electricity for production.

    Mittelstand companies weighed down by higher electricity costs are struggling against competition from U.S. and China"

    Its worth investing in renewables in Europe where up to 70% of the cost is subsidised by the Government.

    "The amount of assistance ranged from 25-70% of the cost of installations. The operation of new facilities was also subsidized, given that the electricity generated by them is 7-8 times more expensive than that produced by nuclear and thermal power plants ."

    Forget about investing in any company in Australia that uses a large quantity of power for production.

    Australians paying the world’s highest electricity prices

    "Currently, Australians citizens have to pay 2-3 times more than the average American citizen to get their electricity supplied. Energy bills in the country are even more expensive than some European countries where electricity is already being taxed heavily. Basically, this means that based on market prices, Australians have the highest electricity prices anywhere in the world."
