The role of #gasstorage is expected to be even more pronounced due to the higher penetration of intermittent energy sources & more electrification into our #energy system. With this study, we wanted to look into more details and raise awareness "
Dr Axel Wietfeld, #GSE President

"The #data we collect & make available for further analyses is the latest & most accurate from the industry. We will continue to deliver the right & most #reliable figures in support for the best decisions.”
Francisco de la Flor, #GIE System Operations & Development Area Sponsor

📣Our new #study is out!
Dive into the vision paper & map to learn more about underground #gasstorage's value to the European #hydrogen system.
Discover their key role in establishing an integrated #energy system & #H2 economy by 2050 here:

The Citizens Energy Congress virtual will open on Tuesday 15th June to welcome thousands of energy transition virtual attendees, from industry, government and civil society, to debate the difficult questions at the heart of the energy transition.


"Let's look at #LNGterminals and low-carbon & #renewable fuels: they have a major role to play in decarbonising #transport! The good thing ➡️the infrastructure we use today for #LNG can be easily used tomorrow for #bioLNG & #syntheticLNG." @AbelDavEnriquez, @enagas
