Sefcovic sees no future in strict energy price regulation
EU Commissioner Maros Sefcovic believes that strict price regulation should be replaced by the concept of energy poverty.
European Commissioner responsible for the Energy Union Maros Sefcovic disagrees with the opinion of the government led by the political party which nominated him in his post on the price regulation in the energy sector. While the Slovak government supports strict price regulation in energy prices, Slovak EU commissioner would like to loosen it in the future. „We propose promoting free-market principles in a gradual and socially sensitive manner to eliminate very strict price regulation,“ Sefcovic said at the press conference on Tuesday. In his words, strict price regulation should be replaced by the concept of energy poverty.
