CEOE stated that it seems "worrying" that the cogeneration associated with the industry "has had to stop 60% of its activity due to the lack of support measures and the increase in the price of gas when, precisely, they are efficient plants that they bring competitiveness to energy-intensive industries'.

Likewise, the employers considered it "essential" that these policies be designed "in dialogue with the affected sectors and making maximum use of all the flexibility that other European countries are applying in this context of crisis."

CEOE emphasized the need for the "commitment of the administration with material and human resources" and described as "surprising" that in August "very relevant issues, with limited deadlines and with the completion of receiving observations this same month or at beginning of September, without having sufficient personnel in the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge in this holiday period.
