Warmer, warmer, getting warmer

The ongoing energy crisis is translating into end-user prices and regulatory interventions, not only in electricity and gas. The heating sector is also facing major changes, and the legislation is the beginning of these changes, analyses mec. Joanna Bernat, partner at BWW & Wspólnicy law firm.

The energy crisis and competition in the gas market

Competition in the natural gas market is closely linked to the energy crisis, further reinforced by Russia’s aggression in Ukraine. As a result of these factors, which have an impact on wholesale gas prices, the State and the government have undertaken a far-reaching intervention in market mechanisms that we have not seen before. This is probably not the end of the response to external circumstances, analyses Małgorzata Banasik, managing partner of BWW and Partners law firm.
