    Europe: Written question – An energy crisis nightmare threatens the EU – E-003114/2022

      Question for written answer E-003114/2022

      to the Commission

      Rule 138

      Ioannis Lagos (NI)

      Despite the measures announced by the Commission to address the energy crisis, it seems to be impossible to resolve the problem successfully. The loss of power generation capacity as a result of maintenance works on nuclear power stations in France, the closure of nuclear reactors in Germany and the drought across the continent has meant that an increasing number of power stations have been put into operation that produce electricity by burning gas, which has become a luxury because of the sanctions. At the same time, Morgan Stanley forecasts that the EU will increase its spending on electricity by more than EUR 800 billion because the price per megawatt is rising throughout Europe. As a result, 64% of Belgium’s citizens are afraid they will not be able to pay their energy bills, while 8 in 10 Belgians say that they are using ‘less electricity, gas, water or heating fuel’. In Finland, Fingrid, the electricity grid operator, has announced that Finns will have to be prepared for power cuts because of a probable shortage of electricity this winter.

      • 1.Does the Commission have any additional measures in its arsenal to deal with the energy crisis?
      • 2.Does it intend to provide more financial support to those affected by the crisis?
