The European Commission will be vigilant over the impact on EU competition of Germany’s 200-billion-euro ($194-billion) plan to cap energy prices, Internal Market Commissioner Thierry Breton told AFP on Friday.

“I have taken note of the announcement of the German plan, which we will have to look at in detail in the coming days,” said Breton.

Berlin’s spending spree has drawn criticism from several European leaders, including Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, who called the plan unfair.
