FEVE position on risk of energy shortage

Brussels, 10 March 2022

The security of energy supply (and in particular natural gas) has recently deteriorated in the EU. The causes are known: the current Ukrainian crisis, low stocks of natural gas in the EU at the beginning of the winter period, the reduction of domestic production in some EU member states (e.g. the Netherlands), the booming Asian demand after the COVID pandemic. All these factors combined makes it nowadays not unimaginable to envisage supply shortages, with their deleterious effects on the EU economy. In this paper, FEVE wants to inform decision-makers about the consequences of an energy cut (in particular disrupted natural gas supply) in the container glass industry and its value chain and. FEVE also calls for a constructive dialogue with decision-makers in the event of a possible disruption of natural gas supply to industrial sectors.
