    You write, “The burden of ever-rising electricity prices can’t be borne by German businesses and households forever.”

    But they can, as long as they don’t compete with imports. As long as people are unwilling to move between countries inside the EU, households won’t be driven out by higher energy costs, and businesses in non-tradable sectors are similarly protected. It becomes just a “green tax” that has to be paid.
