Compensation Schemes for energy intensive industries need to balance between international Competitiveness and national Burden Sharing.
Energy Intensive Industry is not a constant term for its energy intensity or the relation of profitability and energy inputs.
A good way to measure energy intensity would be to calculate the EBITDA per MWh for industries and relate compensation schemes based on these results.
Aluminium smelters are the most energy intensive industries on a large scale (consuming 5% of the global electricity) and achieve specific EBITDA results between 10 - 25 €/MWh.
Other metal sectors or chemical plants are energy intensive as well but often achieve relative EBITDA figures above 100 €/MWh.
