AFAIK it costs about 0.25 €/kWh.
I don't know how large is your studio, but having to use so much power for heating means that you have no insulation at all, an aircraft hanger or you've missed the calculation.

If you have a 2 kW radiator it won't burn 48 kWh/day, because the thermostat switches it off when the room temperature is high enough. I think that in a medium-sized control room, which is usually well insulated, you need almost no heating once it reaches the wanted temperature.
