Storengy Deutschland: Interview with Catherine Gras

The future role of gas also plays an important role in this edition. There are two interviews. Catherine Gras, the Storengy Deutschland’s managing director, looks at the topic from the perspective of a storage operator. Patrick Graichen, director of agora Energiewende, a think-tank, asks the gas industry to advocate for a quota for green hydrogen.
In a letter to the House of Commons on December 14, the British energy minister described the impact of a no-deal Brexit to the gas and power exchange with the continent. The core message: the impact is small. The regulation for the European network codes can mainly be transposed to national statutory instruments. The Network Code Capacity Allocation (NC CAM), for example, can be adjusted to national regulation in such a way that references to EU institutions are left out. This will allow cross-border gas trading to continue. Only potential solidarity supplies stipulated in the European Regulation on Gas Security of Supply (SoS Regulation) will not take place. Many market participants are more concerned about a smooth operation in the case of a no-deal Brexit.
