Prof. Krasnodębski: Energy security package fulfils the idea of European solidarity

The European Commission today presented its energy security package.

The European Commission today presented its energy security package. According to Prof. Zdzisław Krasnodębski, European Conservatives and Reformists Group Coordinator in the parliament’s industry and energy committee, the proposal contains several important measures aimed at strengthening the EU’s resilience to gas supply disruptions.

According to Prof. Krasnodębski, the package strikes the right balance between market forces and solidarity mechanisms which shall be launched if any EU country is in trouble due to supply shocks which happened many times in the past.

“This measure will significantly strengthen the position of particular EU countries that in the past used to suffer from supply shocks. Moreover, the idea of compelling EU countries to show solidarity in times of crisis by sending gas to their distressed neighbours, especially those reliant on one dominant supplier, is also important as it makes European solidarity real”, Mr Krasnodębski said.

The ECR Coordinator in ITRE stressed that the Conservatives and Reformists Group support encouraging cooperation on a regional level and ensuring easy access to energy by tapping new suppliers as well as boosting indigenous productions and sending gas across the bloc. He also pointed out that the supply side of the energy market plays a vital role in delivering safe, sustainable and competitive energy to EU citizens and businesses. “It should be an EU priority to diversify its energy suppliers”, Mr Krasnodębski said.
