Energy: Emmanuel Macron asks suppliers to "renegotiate" "excessive contracts" in January


In a speech on the occasion of the Epiphany cake ceremony, Emmanuel Macron returned to the difficulties encountered by

He wants to be reassuring.

Emmanuel Macron spoke, this Thursday noon, to bakers and, more broadly, to all entrepreneurs affected by the energy crisis, on the occasion of the Epiphany cake ceremony.

Recalling that these price increases were linked "first to the war" but also to the fact that France had not "produced as much electricity with its nuclear fleet" as expected, the Head of State estimated that two-thirds of VSEs (very small businesses) had to renegotiate their energy contracts.

“Renegotiate” “excessive contracts”

“Some have negotiated contracts that increase in reasonable proportions.

But there are others who have had x5 or x10 and this is not normal, it is abusive and aberrant”, he hammered.

He therefore called on suppliers to "renegotiate" "excessive contracts" in January.

I have “enough” of those who make “excessive profits” in this period of crisis, he further affirmed.

Emmanuel Macron also recalled that the State would bear “40% of the increase” in energy prices.

“These increases must be reasonable, they must be absorbed by everyone”.

If he explained that the toll-free number dedicated to the rise in energy prices was not working, the President of the Republic announced that numbers by department will be relayed "from Monday".
