Energy: Netzagentur boss warns to be cautious when heating

Despite the current low temperatures, the head of the Federal Network Agency, Klaus Müller, has appealed to citizens not to turn up all the heating. He never tires of warning and asking, Müller said on Deutschlandfunk on Saturday.

A week or two of cold did not make him particularly concerned, emphasized Müller. But you shouldn't get carried away. If everyone turned up the heating in every room, a lot of gas would be used. And if that goes on for a long time, there might not be enough gas by the end of winter to meet the needs of the industry, Mueller warned. It remains the case that 20 percent of gas should be saved across all sectors.

The German gas storage facilities are currently still around 95 percent full. The filling level had fallen seasonally in the past few days. On Friday, the operators of the natural gas storage facilities continued to assume that Germany would be able to get through the winter without a gas shortage as long as there were no extremely low temperatures. The probability of a gas shortage situation has further decreased due to increased consumption savings, reported the storage association Initiative Energies Storage (Ines). If the strong consumption savings continue, "Germany will get through the winter well," said Ines Managing Director Sebastian Bleschke.
