High energy costs are forcing factories across Europe to stop production

Europe's Shortage of Energy Shortage



The rising cost of energy is forcing factories throughout Europe to shutter. July saw the biggest decline in the production of industrial goods in Europe in the past two years and the current situation is in crisis. To tackle the increasing cost of energy European governments have allocated approximately 500 billion euros. Germany is a prime example. Germany has made its utility company national Uniper in an attempt to manage costs.



Europe's energy security crises



The crisis of energy security in Europe is a grave issue that affects all of Europe. Despite abundant coal, natural gas and Uranium resources, Europe is currently dependent on foreign sources of energy to meet its energy requirements. Additionally, anti-nuclear, and fossil fuel policies have severely hampered European energy production.


There are several ways to address Europe's energy security crisis. One strategy is to create market conditions for energy production. This is a better approach as opposed to taxing the profits of energy companies. Europe is currently undergoing massive reforms to its energy market. Although it might not be the best option for everyone, it's the most cost-effective and efficient way to lower energy prices and boost energy security.


The European Union will need to resolve the deep tensions among its members on nuclear energy. Nuclear power can reduce reliance on Russian energy supplies and help the European Union meet its climate goals. A large portion of Central and Eastern Europe, however, do not agree with the German government's anti-nuclear policy. Additionally it is possible that the United States' nuclear power industry could regain the market share that was lost to Rosatom due to its anti-nuclear energy policies.



Problems due to the dependence of HTML0 on Russian fossil fuels



Germany recently stopped a controversial pipeline project to increase Russian gas supply to Germany. In spite of these developments, Europe remains heavily dependent on Russian gas and oil. The European Union plans to become more self-sufficient in this area. In the coming week it is expected that the European Commission is expected to unveil its plan to become energy independent.


The EU should diversify its energy portfolio, and also eliminate Russian natural gas. Its energy policies are more forward-thinking than those of the United States' and other major powers'. And it is concerned with global cooperation instead of nationalistic petty partisanship. Its policies align with the global climate change and the need to gradually transition away from hydrocarbons and towards renewable energy.


Although Russia as well as the EU share the cost of energy but the European Union is still reliant on Russian energy for much of its energy needs. Much of the gas that Russia produces is shipped over pipelines that were built during the Soviet period through Eastern Europe. Although Moscow is looking to construct new pipelines it can only provide just a tiny portion of the energy consumed in Europe.



Solutions to the crisis



There are a variety of solutions to Europe's energy crisis. There are many possible solutions to the European energy crisis. These include fuel subsidy in addition to reducing taxes on consumption and passing the higher wholesale costs onto the industry. However, it is unlikely that these solutions can be implemented without the involvement of businesses. Although it might appear politically advantageous, but it could affect the incentives consumers are given to save money on energy.


The first step to resolving Europe's energy crisis is to find the root cause. The problem is that the EU is yet to identify the root cause of the issue. Russia is being blamed by European authorities for reducing the gas pipelines. The continent has seen an increase in electric bills and shortages of gas. In order to compensate for this numerous nations have increased the use of coal and fuel oil.


Another option is to think about different natural gas supply. The vast majority of natural gas imports from Russia is used by European countries. The price of natural gas has increased by tenfold since 2000. Also, the demand for gas is not elastic, which means that the increase in supply will not lead to the reduction of consumer demand.
