More than 70 participants accepted the invitation to the event "Presentation of the study: synergy effects in the import of energy carriers with a Lower Saxony LNG terminal", which was hosted online by LNG.Agentur Niedersachsen on the 1st of June 2021.
The third funding call within the framework of the "Guideline for the expansion and conversion of seagoing vessels for the use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel" has been launched: Applications can be submitted again as of now.
There are many reasons for using liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a fuel in shipping. Nevertheless, even many years after the first LNG-powered ships have entered service, there are still numerous challenges and need for action, which were highlighted and discussed by around 60 shipping company representatives at the cross-border online event "LNG as fuel: Status update" organized by LNG.Agentur Niedersachsen on the 25th of March 2021.
The Budget Committee of the German Parliament has decided to expand LNG funding for seagoing vessels. The corresponding proposal by Rüdiger Kruse, member of the Hamburg parliament, had received broad support in the committee.
What can the energy supply in Germany look like in the future? What role does LNG play in this? What opportunities and risks does it entail? And: Does Germany need its own terminal to import LNG? This was discussed by 20 representatives of environmental associations, politics, science and industry at the LNG Dialogue, which was conducted online by the LNG.Agentur Niedersachsen on 19 November 2020.
The LNG.Agentur Niedersachsen is funded as a project by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi) and the State of Lower Saxony via the "Gemeinschaftsaufgabe Verbesserung der regionalen Wirtschaftsstruktur" (GRW).
