Energy market: Germany follows EU proposal
German Economy Minister Robert Habeck wants to advance the skimming of windfall profits in the energy sector at meetings at the EU level. In doing so, the German government is following up on a proposal made by the EU Commission last week. The skimming off of windfall profits, as well as the planned electricity price cap for basic consumption, will be a topic at the consultations of the EU energy ministers next Friday, the Green politician said yesterday after the German governing coalition adopted a third relief package with a volume of €65 billion.
