“The Commission is also offering a temporary solidarity contribution for excess profits generated from activities in the oil, gas, coal and oil refining sectors,” the report said.

The EC clarified that the fees will affect companies whose profit in 2022 “exceeds a 20% increase compared to the average profit for the previous three years.” The funds will be collected by EU member states and redirected to vulnerable energy consumers.

This contribution “could generate around 25 billion euros in government revenue” from the excess profits of the respective companies for fiscal year 2022.
