EU Reporter

Brussels wants member states to turn down the heating and air-conditioning to stave off an energy crisis in the winter. EU countries should give households and companies financial incentives to reduce demand, according to a draft “gas-demand reduction plan” seen by the Financial Times. The commission said in the draft text that measures could cut the impact of “sudden supply disruption by one-third”.
