German term or phrase: Verbrauchskosten
Die Energie- und Verbrauchskosten sind im normalen Rahmen gestiegen.
Are 'Verbrauchskosten' just the same as 'Energiekosten' or does the term imply something more, ie electricity, gas and water costs etc.

costs of usage


Explanation:
Please take a look at the context and check if by any chance it could refer to Energie costs (the actual price of the KW or other source of energy) and costs of usage (meaning for example the costs of the use of the facility, i.e. a meter rental) ?????
