Official: Europe anticipates probable power cuts throughout winter

(MENAFN) The European Union is geeting ready for emergency situations and power reductions because of the forthcoming energy crisis in winter, the bloc’s crisis administration commissioner stated on Tuesday.

“During the coronavirus pandemic we’ve learned that we should prepare ourselves before a crisis begins, and therefore we’re now trying to predict future crises,” Janez Lenarcic informed the Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland media group.

The EU’s crisis administration official stated that they are putting efforts on numerous scenarios, as well as expect that member states could require EU relief help because of the energy defects or power cuts in the coming months.

“If only one state, or a small number of member states are affected by a minor incident such as a blackout, other EU states can supply power generators through us, as it happens during natural disasters,” Lenarcic stated.

Adding: “However, if a large number of countries are affected, and EU states have to cap their emergency aid deliveries, we are (EU Commission) in a position to cover the needs from our strategic reserve.”
