Energy crisis: we need a game-changer proposal
24 October 2022 - Following last week’s European Council, energy ministers will discuss tomorrow in Luxembourg the recently tabled proposals and possible further measures. BusinessEurope calls on the European Commission and Member States to urgently propose and agree on a proposal to temporarily decouple electricity prices from gas prices.
BusinessEurope Director General Markus J. Beyrer said: "Some progress has been made at the EU summit last week.

EU business cannot afford to wait much more as future investment decisions are at stake at this very moment."
