The European Commission has approved a €49 billion economic support program for Germany. According to the plan, the economic assistance will take the form of direct grants through energy suppliers for eligible beneficiaries to reduce electricity, gas and heating bills before being reimbursed by the German government for the subsidies provided by energy suppliers.
European Commission Executive Vice President Margrethe Vestager said that many industrial and commercial sectors in Germany have been hit by rising energy prices. The 49 billion euro support program will allow Germany to mitigate the impact of rising energy costs on its economy and temporarily protect electricity, gas and heat consumers from extreme price increases.
