Jochen Homann: Former head of the Federal Network Agency: "A subsidized industrial electricity price is not a good idea!"

Until the start of the war in Ukraine, Jochen Homann, 70, headed the Bonn Federal Network Agency, the most powerful German authority for energy and infrastructure issues. Among other things, he prevented the rapid approval of the controversial Russian gas pipeline Nord Stream 2. In an interview, the economist explains how Germany's energy transition really is. And he demands: Down with the electricity taxes for everyone!

Mr. Homann, do you drive an electric car privately? Do you heat with a heat pump? No, I have neither an electric car nor a heat pump.
