Hannover (dpa/lni) – At the end of the week of the state parliament, a question and answer session today (9 am) will deal with the development of Lower Saxony as a scientific site and the supply of gas. As far as gas supply is concerned, the SPD parliamentary group wants to know how the state government intends to support the necessary development of structures in the short term.
Due to the war in Ukraine, politicians have been discussing for weeks how Germany can become more independent of Russian gas supplies. About half of Germany’s annual gas needs come from Russia.
In response to the Ukraine war, Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced the rapid construction of two terminals for the import of liquefied natural gas in Germany, naming Brunsbüttel in Schleswig-Holstein and Wilhelmshaven in Lower Saxony as locations. Plans are also underway for a liquefied natural gas terminal in Stade, Lower Saxony.
