The German authorities have found a way to save gas and increase the rate of filling underground gas storages (UGS). They are going to achieve this by increasing the use of coal-fired power plants.
“Gas consumption should be further reduced. Instead, more gas should be pumped into underground storage facilities, otherwise there will be a shortage in winter, ”the report of the German Ministry of Economy says.
The head of the department, Robert Habek, in turn, emphasized the importance of implementing a set of necessary measures in order to fill the storage facilities to the maximum in summer and autumn.⠀
Earlier, US Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm called on companies around the world that produce oil and gas to increase energy production.
