EU countries to continue natural gas conservation

The EU Council has announced that member state energy ministers agreed to continue to save natural gas at a meeting in Brussels.

In the statement, it was stated that the member countries agreed to continue voluntary demand reduction measures in order to reach sufficient gas storage levels in the next winter period, and that member countries will continue to reduce gas demand by 15 percent below the 2017-2022 average until March 2025.

The gas austerity scheme, which came into effect in EU countries in the wake of the Russia-Ukraine war and the energy crisis that followed, was set to expire on March 31. With the decision taken, this practice will continue for one more year.
