However dependency on a gas from a one source spells - political consequences.....
....it's not only one source:
...Germany's energy mix for power production is about 40% coal, more than 30% renewables, less than 20% gas and 10% nuclear....
And you know from ATP how hard Germany works to rise the usage of renewables...soon we will reach the 50% benchmark...the dependency on russian gas doesn't equals "captive" at all!
All that talk by Trump is not because he cares for Germany's energy problems...not at all...he wants to push the selling of US liquid natural gas (LNG) in Europe. It's business nothing political about it.
Thing is, american LNG is to expensive for most Europeans. The US needs to become alot more consumer friendly to become a real rival on the international gas market.
Trump isn't helping with that!
