RWE boss expects falling gas supplies from Russia

In the event of a gas shortage, Krebber advocated leaving the distribution of the gas largely to the market. “We need a three-stage process: There are certain customers who absolutely deserve protection, for example in the health sector. Secondly, price signals are the best way to distribute a tight supply efficiently, even in shortage situations,” said the top manager. “Thirdly, we need incentives for substitution and savings.” Private households could not be forced to make savings.

“location manageable”

RWE itself is now largely independent of Russian gas, the CEO told the newspaper. “We still have a contract for a residual amount from Russia that expires at the end of next year. But the size is not really relevant for us. The situation is manageable for us.”
