This interactive dashboard, developed by Miaomiao Rimmer and Luke (Leelook) Min, assesses the potential outcomes for natural gas market balances this winter and next in Germany through three demand-oriented scenarios: (1) cold winter 2022-23, (2) mild winter 2022-23, and (3) an extreme case in which this winter and the next are colder than normal, with a warmer than normal summer. Users may also select variations in LNG imports and policies related to storage mandates.
View the dashboard and select the buttons under “Scenario,” “LNG Imports” and “Storage Mandate” to see different outcomes.
In a related issue brief — Natural Gas Balance in Europe: Germany as a Case Study — the Center for Energy Studies' Kenneth B. Medlock III, Anna Mikulska and Luke (Leelook) Min describe key takeaways from the three scenarios. The brief also includes a technical note for the dashboard in the appendix. Read it here.
