Despite the drop in outside temperatures, the German gas storage facilities continue to be filled. The filling level was recently 99.3 percent, according to preliminary data from the European gas storage association GIE. That was 0.15 percentage points more than the day before.

According to data from the German weather service, the average temperature in Germany was 9 degrees on Thursday, as can be seen from the weather data portal mtwetter.de. According to earlier information from the Storage Association Initiative Energies Storage (Ines), gas demand increases at average temperatures of six degrees or less. According to Managing Director Sebastian Bleschke, it will then be difficult to store larger quantities.

The storage facilities compensate for fluctuations in gas consumption and thus form a buffer system for the market. They are usually well filled when the heating season begins in autumn. The filling levels then decrease until spring. According to the Energy Industry Act, they should still be 40 percent full on February 1st.
