The One About Energy

In response to the extremely volatile prices caused by Russia’s weaponisation of energy, on 18 October 2022, the EU Commission proposed a new emergency regulation to address high gas prices in the EU and ensure security of supply this winter. This will be done through joint gas purchasing, price limiting mechanisms on the TTF gas exchange, new measures on transparent infrastructure use, solidarity between Member States, and continuous efforts to reduce gas demand. Aidas Palubinskas chats with the EU Commission’s Director General for Finance Sean Berrigan about the financial markets aspects.

Short episodes are released at the same time as the monthly EU Commission Finance Newsletter on topics related to banks, capital markets, insurance, digital or sustainable finance, anti-money laundering, sanctions, etc. The host of the podcast is not an expert, so tries to get the topics explained as simply as possible. The views expressed are those of the participants and not necessarily those of the EU Commission.
