German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said Tuesday he wanted to hurry through reforms to the energy market to ease steep rises in the price of electricity ahead of the coming European winter.

"We will now push this through with great speed so that we can relieve the burden on consumers and companies," Scholz said in a speech. "This will happen at the speed necessary to get it under control this winter."
