“The main objective is to guarantee gas supplies for the winter, when there is a peak of industrial and domestic consumption. With the war, in Italy we have had a decrease in flows of 15%. It means that the risk is that there is even less gas and a further increase in prices “. This was stated by the Minister of Ecological Transition, Roberto Cingolani, speaking to Sky Tg24 Progress. “To deal with this situation – continues Cingolani – we have first of all foreseen in the bill measures for the increase of stocks. Today we are around 60% and we must reach 90%. For this reason we have foreseen financial allocations to allow operators and the operator to find gas on the market and secure these supplies for supplying the country “. “It is clear that Germany starts from a different economic position compared to us on the subject of storage. It has put 40 billion on this thing, and therefore is slightly ahead of Italy. But at the moment we are much more robust than the Germany on the energy issue “, added Cingolani. “We are the only country that, for several weeks, has completely differentiated the sources of gas supply. The other countries are in a state of emergency and must rush, while Italy can build a more stable future. I would not change the our position at the moment “.
