In Germany, spoke about the replacement of Russian gas

Germany has begun implementing plans to replace Russian gas supplies, the need for which has been discussed for so long in Berlin. Thus, the authorities of Germany and Norway announced the possibility of transporting Norwegian “green” hydrogen to German consumers and building a corresponding pipeline.

At the moment, specialists are engaged in a feasibility study of the project. The implementation of these ambitious plans into reality was discussed yesterday by Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre and the head of the German economic department, Robert Habek.

In the coming months and years it will be critical to accelerate the development of alternative energy sources for Europe as a replacement for Russian gas and oil

– was noted in the joint statement of the parties.

Earlier, EU officials announced the need to reduce the dependence of European countries on energy from Russia by two-thirds. It seems that in the current situation of high gas prices, Europe has no choice but to gradually switch to alternative energy sources. One of them could be "green" hydrogen from Norway.

In addition, Berlin intends to expand programs for the construction of new terminals for liquefied natural gas, as well as to force a gradual shift away from fossil fuels.

    Yeah. From each cow - a tube. In Norway - from every herring.

      Found? Well done. Then we turn you off ... Build a pipeline with Norway without Russia ..

    Well, the flag is in your hands, only the whole point is that gas reserves in Norway are left for 1,5-2 months, which they themselves talked about., And the United States will sell its LNG to you at a price of 6000 dollars. Yes , politics is politics, and snot will freeze the people.

    Found this sounds overly optimistic. There is no implementation. The usual noodles on the ears of voters.
    They just had to say something at the end of the meeting, to show that they were doing something.
    In fact, they will consider options for half a year and scratch their turnips.

    Germany and Norway considering options building a hydrogen pipeline to reduce its dependence on Russia for energy supplies

    As part of the plan, Germany and Norway conduct a feasibility study proposed pipeline project

    Production by electrolysis and even using electricity from renewable sources to replace Russian gas today is almost a fantasy. Even they understand this. Therefore, no green hydrogen, at the initial stage, blue hydrogen is considered, that is, produced from gas.

    Two countries conduct a joint study to find out under what conditions such a project would be feasible and explore the potential large-scale imports of hydrogen, including by pipeline, from Norway to Germany. The use of blue hydrogen is considered as an option for the transition period as a means of accelerating the development of green hydrogen and quickly realizing large-scale imports.

      Forced to repeat. I already wrote in "Pulse" that the issue is the cost (not the market price) of energy obtained from various sources, since it really reflects in the end the energy costs for its production, as well as for other products. At the same time, it is necessary to include in the cost price and costs for the disposal of means of energy production, and so on ...
      So Germany decided to inflate another bubble, but "Daddy" from across the ocean was ahead of her

    You can't use pure hydrogen. Maximum 20% to natural gas. Today this is the reality.

    The Germans can have as much fun as they want, but they will no longer have cheap gas. Plus, they may lose markets for their products in Ukraine and Russia. The era of cheap natural resources is over.

    Apparently for journalists there is no difference between hydrogen and gas. ))) Of course, I agree that "apple trees will also bloom on Mars", but when?

    That is, they have no alternatives right here and now. There are only a few guidelines on how to turn everything around. However, it will not be possible to replace such a breakthrough of gas either quickly or slowly. Will the industry wait for the few years that it will take to find, conclude contracts and introduce new economical technologies? Plus, as far as I remember, they are looking for part of the solutions in line with "green energy". And it kills normal energy without additional difficulties. Apparently, the European boys in pink pants and women with a bow have not yet stupidly realized the scale of the problem, nor the fact that all this is for a long time.

    This is all propaganda of geyropy ..., the Norwegians already said NO to Germany when they were contacted, and if they agreed, then for now the bottom line is that everyone will die from cold and hunger ... such things are not done quickly ...
