BERLIN, June 23 (Reuters) - German energy provider E.ON
says a decision by the government to trigger the
"alarm stage" of a national emergency gas plan does not
fundamentally change the status quo.
"We have prepared intensively for this situation, (and) are
doing everything we can to keep the impact on customers as minor
as possible," a company spokesperson said in an email to Reuters
However, the spokesperson warned that the price of gas on
wholesale markets would rise even further if Russian imports
were halted completely.
