Ensuring the gas consumption of household customers and heat generating plants will be a challenge if the next winter will be a difficult one, and gas suppliers will not receive the necessary quantities in time, said representatives of E.ON Romania.
They were asked what effects the gas market will have in the winter, after ANRE’s decision to reduce regulated prices by 5% from July 1.
“If the capping of the price to 68 lei / MWh will increase the consumption of the households and the producers of thermal energy, it is possible to increase the winter imports to cover the consumption needs of the market. We also believe that covering the consumption of household customers and heat producers will be a challenge if winter will be a difficult one and we will not be provided early enough to fully cover the necessary quantities of domestic production to cover consumption of these customers,” said E.ON, quoted by Agerpres.
The National Regulatory Authority for Energy decided on Monday to reduce gas prices by more than 5% on average for all regulated households.
