The federal government has set up the Gas Commission, a group of experts that will have to quickly come up with proposals to deal with the high costs of this energy Source and heating in Germany. In October, the committee is expected to deliver results on how to reduce rising energy costs and mitigate the consequences of high inflation for businesses and consumers. This is what was declared by the German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, at the end of the second meeting of the Concerted Action, held in Berlin yesterday 15 September.
This is the German government’s initiative to combat inflation by agreeing the necessary responses together with employers’ associations and trade unions. The first meeting of the Concerted Action took place in Berlin on 4 July. The Gas Commission will have three co-chairs. First, Veronica Grimm, member of the German Council of Experts for the Analysis of Macroeconomic Developments (SVR).
Known as the “Five Wise Men” by the number of members, the SVR is the group of German economists who have exercised advisory functions for the federal government since 1963. At the top of the Gas Commission, Grimm will be joined by Michael Vassiliadis and Siegfried Russwurm, respectively general secretary of the union of the mining, chemical and energy sectors (Ig BCE) and president of the Federal Association of German Industry (BDI). The next Concerted Action meeting will take place in November.CopyAMP code
