Prague – The Minister of Industry and Trade Jozef Síkela (for STAN) requests the Energy Regulatory Office (ERO) to submit proposals for resolving the current situation on the energy market. The office is to deliver them within 14 days. Within one month, Síkela wants to get a strategic outlook, or even specific legislative proposals. He told reporters today after talks with ERO representatives.

“We have to think about whether the regulation of the energy market is sufficient, especially in the area of ​​consumer protection,” said Sikela. According to him, over a million customers ended up in the supplier of last resort (DPI) regime, the main reason being the increase in wholesale energy prices. The Bohemia Energy Group, the largest group of alternative energy suppliers in the Czech Republic, which supplied energy to approximately 900,000 clients, announced the termination of its activities and supplies of electricity and gas on 13 October last year. She cited the extreme rise in energy prices in the markets as a reason. Subsequently, other smaller suppliers ended up as well.
