According to the gas storage operators, Germany can survive the upcoming winter without a gas emergency. “If there are no extreme temperatures, Germany will get through the winter of 2022/23 well,” said the Energy Storage Initiative (Ines) association. Although gas shortages cannot be completely ruled out, they are very unlikely given the current weather forecast. 14 companies are represented in the association, representing more than 90 percent of German gas storage capacities. The storage is currently 100 percent full. The stored quantity roughly corresponds to the gas consumption in January and February 2022. It should be noted that the storage facilities only make a small part of the gas supply available to the market, even when demand is high.
