European Union chief Ursula von der Leyen will present the European Commission’s proposals to cap energy prices in a speech on September 14, a senior European official said.

“Von der Leyen, our president, will present it in more detail on September 14,” Mechtild Versdorfer, deputy director-general of the Commission’s energy agency, said during a meeting of the European Parliament’s energy committee.

The question of imposing a ceiling but also of a more general restructuring of the energy market, will be at the center of the Extraordinary Council of Energy Ministers on September 9. The ceiling on the price of gas means that Europe as a whole will decide on a maximum price, above which it will refuse to buy the Russian energy product.

The reduction of energy and natural gas consumption, the cap on natural gas and the decoupling of the price of electricity from natural gas they are the three directions in which European Union officials are looking for solutions to the energy crisis.

We remind you that a few days ago, in the cabinet the Greek prime minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, repeated his proposal of seven months ago for “ceiling on natural gas prices, decoupling of natural gas prices and those of electricity” that took place in Spain and Portugal, but not in our country, with the Greek side asking for a “total European response to the crisis”, continuing the allowances.

It is noted that the 27 EU member states agreed at the end of July to voluntarily reduce the consumption of natural gas by 15% between August and March 2023. However, mandatory cuts could be imposed by the EU if the supply crisis worsens.
