The Minister of Energy, Virgil Popescu, declared on Wednesday, January 5, that he expects a moderation of the gas price starting from April, when the demand will be lower. This will also lead to a drop in the price of electricity, he added.

The minister announced that an assessment would be made in January to see further price trends.

“From April onwards, I estimate a moderation in the price of natural gas, a decrease in the price of gas, which will obviously lead to a moderation in the price of electricity. Consumption decreases in spring and summer, there will be no more pressure on the price “, Virgil Popescu declared on Wednesday evening, at Digi24.

He reiterated the idea that the exponential rise in the price of natural gas was caused by the geopolitical game of the Russian Federation, through Gazprom.

“It’s complicated to play the same way at a time when you have no demand. In summer, consumption decreases a lot “, the minister added.

Popescu specified that the decrease in the price of gas will also lead to a decrease in the price of electricity: “We do not expect a decrease in the price of electricity at the level of last year, it is clear that such a thing is no longer possible. The price of the CO2 certificate has risen sharply, “he added.

The Minister also announced that measures are being sought for next autumn-winter.

“We will see what measures we will take next for the next autumn and winter, we are thinking of new sets of measures that will not catch us unprepared in the next period”, specified Virgil Popescu.
