Contractors, materials and other
The purchase costs and costs of subcontracted work were up by €22 million compared with the preceding year and amounted to €424 million. The costs of contractors and materials were up by €27 million, accounted for by the greater volume of work carried out in 2018. In contrast, the grid loss costs were down by €9 million, mainly as a result of gains on reconciliation and the lower purchase tariffs.
