Completed Project

Project Management

Dr. Franziska Holz

Project Period

January 1 - 31, 2021

Commissioned by

Naturschutzbund Deutschland e. V.
In this report, the role of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project for the German and the European natural gas market was investigated in the short run and the long run. In the short run, no supply gap can be identified that would justify the speedy finalization of construction works on the Nord Stream 2 project. In the long run, there is no need for the Nord Stream 2 pipeline due to the German and Europan climate commitments.
