The European Parliament and European Council have announced that they have reached a draft agreement on new regulations aimed at preventing gas supply crises.
Under the new gas security rules, announced on Thursday 27 April, member states are compelled to aid neighbours during supply crises, prioritising domestic consumers. Miguel Arias Cañete, Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy said: “With this agreement between the Parliament and the Council, we take another big step forward towards strengthening the EU’s energy security.
The new regulation paves the way for better co-ordinated crisis prevention and handling of potential gas crises by combining standards set at EU level with regional co-operation and solidarity. This increases our effectiveness and reduces costs for EU consumers.”
