Swedish energy minister: need to decouple gas from electricity price
PRAGUE (Reuters) – The European Union needs to find a way to decouple gas and electricity prices, Swedish energy minister Khashayar Farmanbar said on Wednesday, ahead of a meeting of the bloc’s energy ministers.
“That can be done through various suggestions,” Farmanbar said. “But one thing is important: What we do now, the market interference needs to be a short time… and also must not be a hinder for renewable and fossil fuel energy production.”
