Europe has been facing a disastrous energy crisis, with energy costs skyrocketing and threatening the stability of the entire continent.
Europe is at a crossroads, and its choices in the coming years will determine the continent’s energy future.And one of the main challenges is the high cost and limited natural gas supply, which is a crucial energy source for many European countries.
And experts believe these bottlenecks in regasification capacity have several impacts on Europe’s energy market.Now, Europe must invest in new infrastructure and modernize existing facilities to address the bottlenecks in regasification capacity.
The European Union’s energy ministers met for the fifth time in a hurry, but they couldn’t agree on a EU price cap for Russian gas, so the meeting ended in a stalemate.
The bloc wants to punish Moscow by paying less for its gas, while protecting consumers from prices that have soared since the Ukraine war began. The split is between those wanting tough measures and those fearing that too low a cap might affect supplies.
That could happen if producers sell to other markets instead of the EU as higher rates are on offer elsewhere.
The ministers are hoping to reach a compromise at another round of talks next week. But can the deep divisions within the EU be overcome?
