ČRo Plus | Measures to mitigate the energy crisis will continue

Enhanced solidarity, faster deployment of renewable energy and protection of EU citizens from excessive energy prices. EU energy ministers in Brussels today reached agreement on an extension of three measures adopted last year in response to Russia's war against Ukraine. Their aim is to mitigate the impact of the energy crisis. Our senior researcher Kateřina Davidová commented on the topic for ČRo Plus.

"I think it's quite a significant step. It was to be expected that this agreement would be reached, because although electricity and gas prices have stabilised and fallen compared with last winter, the risk that they could rise again still remains, and I think it is good that the ministers have managed to extend the measures for another year."
