UE à espera do corte do gás russo
July 21, 2022 - A Rússia retomou a bombagem de gás pelo gasoduto Nord Stream, mas a Comissão Europeia pediu aos estados membros para reduzirem o consumo de gás em 15% com receio que volte a ser interrompido.
In the last 10 years, Europe has grown increasingly dependent on imports to meet its energy requirements, despite the growth of renewables. More than half of EU energy needs are now met by imports with almost a quarter coming from Russia.
However, countries within the EU have different exposure to Russian imports, and southern European members have objected to the EC request, which some feel penalises them to help support Germany.
