European energy ministers tasked the EU Commission to work through the weekend to rework plans to bring spiraling energy prices under control.
The commission has “a clear mandate to work out a viable proposal, or even better, viable proposals,” German Economy and Energy Minister Robert Habeck said after a summit of energy ministers in Brussels on Friday.
They failed to reach consensus on measures proposed by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen earlier in the week.
The commission could present the reworked proposals for the member states as early as Tuesday.
The EU will table “unprecedented measures next week for an unprecedented situation,” energy commissioner Kadri Simson said.
