Will the EU find a common solution to the energy crisis?

The current price stability of the gas market does not mean the end of problems with possible shortages. The European Commission has therefore prepared a series of measures to stabilise the market and ensure that there will be plenty of gas next year. Our senior research fellow Kateřina Davidová commented on what measures are on the table and how individual countries will respond to the crisis.

"There are also proposals to address the cause of the crisis. Reducing demand for gas and electricity. Or increase supply, get other sources"

"The aim should be to reduce Europe-wide demand. One can invest in alternative solutions. Insulating buildings to make them energy efficient or investing in renewables"

"For anything to go through, Member States have to agree on it. That's why the negotiations are taking as long as they are. A compromise has to be found"
