The latest issue of GASWINNER is online
Kassel. Severe snow storms in the United States, violent hurricanes in Europe – weather services provide early warnings to network operators and energy provider when the weather goes crazy. And the rising use of renewable energies pushes the power grid to its limits with increasing frequency. Read in the latest issue of GASWINNER how new transmission lines in Germany will make the network more stable in the future and how gas-fired power plants already contribute to this development today.
We also report how new, climate-friendly technologies are being advanced through the use of liquefied natural gas in the transport sector. While the Netherlands and the UK feature a relatively dense network of LNG filling stations, Germany has none. This is something a program in North Rhine-Westphalia wants to change.
In addition, the EU Commission is planning to develop an energy strategy for LNG terminals and natural gas storage facilities. An infographic shows the storage capacities for natural gas currently available in Germany and its neighboring countries.
