European Union (EU) energy ministers on Tuesday failed to reach an agreement on a bloc-wide cap on natural gas prices at an emergency Energy Council meeting in Brussels.

Since the European Commission proposed a gas price cap last month, the 27 member states have been split over how to reach a compromise on setting a limit on gas prices. 

“There was a lot of progress but no final breakthrough yet,” said Germany’s Robert Habeck, minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Action. He spoke after the meeting.

The cut in gas deliveries this year since Russia invaded Ukraine has tightened the market in Europe and pushed prices higher. Unusually cold weather has also arrived amid warnings to residential and industrial users to save energy to avoid blackouts.
