Europa reage à crise da enegia ara as famílias

By Phil Bainbridge

August 15, 2022 - O apoio às famílias europeias para enfrentarem os custos crescentes da energia varia muito, com os governos centrados sobretudo em evitar que as empresas passem os aumentos de preços para consumidores.

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.
