Bad Lauchstadt Economy Minister Robert Habeck sees the gas shortage as a fatal crisis for Germany. Russia has drastically reduced supplies with Nord Stream 1. Habic now wants to take a completely different approach to energy — and develop new technology for it.
Economy Minister Robert Habeck spoke of Germany’s “biggest energy crisis”. The reason is the politically desirable and economically created dependence on Russian gas, Habeck said Thursday after visiting the energy region of Bad Lauschstadt in Saxony-Anhalt. “We will free ourselves from this dependency in no time at all.”
Russia reduced supplies via the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline. Habeck said it took decades to bring Germany into this dependency. “Within months and a few years, we will ensure that we overcome this dependency.” There are great dynamics in the demand for hydrogen, in the search for hydrogen and the expansion of renewable energies for hydrogen production. “This is the future.” But first and foremost, you must survive this and the next winter.
Habeck runs a two-day trip to Saxony-Anhalt, Bavaria and Thuringia until Friday. Corporate visits on the agenda. On Thursday evening, the minister wants to answer questions from the public during a public debate in Bayreuth.
