The fiscal side of Europe’s energy crisis
Testimony before the Interparliamentary Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs at the European Parliament.
On 27 February 2023, Bruegel Senior fellow Simone Tagliapietra presented testimony before the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs of the Interparliamentary Conference on Stability, Economic Coordination and Governance in the European Union at the European Parliament on the fiscal side of Europe’s energy crisis.
Only a third of the massive fiscal interventions put in place by European governments since Summer 2021 to shield families and businesses from rising energy prices have been targeted to vulnerable categories. This must change. Future interventions should be guided by a “Green triple-T” criterion and be tailored, targeted and transition-proof – so to help Europe being greener and fairer.
