Europa reagiert auf die Energiekrise der Haushalte

By Phil Bainbridge

August 15, 2022 - Unterstützung für die von steigenden Energiepreisen besonders hart betroffenen Haushalten variiert stark, Regierungen konzentrieren sich vor allem auf die Energieversorger, damit diese die hohen Preise nicht an die Konsumenten weitergeben.

Soaring energy prices have forced governments to take action to shield consumers from the worst of the increases in their utility bills, with some of the poorest countries in Europe having spent a larger proportion of GDP on energy price support.

However, the majority has been spent on preventing price rises being passed on by the energy companies to their customers, which the IMF says does not “incentivise energy savings”, and which is critical in reducing the reliance on imported fuels, particularly Russian oil and gas.
