Germany gives gas the nod

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who leads the world’s fourth biggest economy, has gone on record in favour of gas.

Speaking on 14 March to the VKU, the association of local German utilities at their meeting in Berlin, she said: ‘more than 40 million people in Germany use natural gas to heat their homes. That is half of the country’s population. That is why we need to see the feed in of renewables and the gas sector very closely together.‘
