WINGAS Managing Director Ludwig Möhring emphasized the importance of natural gas for the future energy system at the Handelsblatt Annual Conference for the Energy Sector in Austria
Vienna/ Kassel. An increased use of natural gas can be the key to a low-carbon, and thus future-viable, energy system. The solution lies in a cleverly managed combination of traditional energy sources and renewables. This is because the energy supply of the future must fulfill several requirements: climate efficiency and the CO2 abatement costs associated with this must take center stage in a modern energy system that ensures sustainability, supply security and affordability.
“An increased use of natural gas is a prerequisite of effective and affordable climate protection,” WINGAS Managing Director Ludwig Möhring explained. Natural gas, as the most climate-friendly traditional fuel source, could be a key driver of a climate-efficient energy system and could certainly fulfill this role. This applies to the heating market, as well as for the electricity and transport sectors, he said.
