Review of “Paris compatible sectoral guidelines of the KfW Banking Group” for Electricity, Oil, and Gas
Publication date 27 Mar 2023

Background and summary: At COP 26 in Glasgow in 2021, Germany signed a pledge to end international finance of fossil fuels by the end of 2022, except in limited and clearly defined circumstances that are consistent with a 1.5°C warming limit and the goals of the Paris Agreement.

Plans for German liquefied natural gas terminals are massively oversized
Publication date 13 Dec 2022

The study compares Germany's plans for the expansion of LNG import infrastructure with the actual need for imports. The analysis concludes that Germany's plans are massively oversized and not compatible with the path to climate neutrality. Germany's climate protection goals require a significant reduction in gas consumption, and the planned infrastructure either risks large financial losses due to low utilisation, or calls into question compliance with the path to climate neutrality.

Pläne für deutsche Flüssigerdgas-Terminals sind massiv überdimensioniert
Publication date 08 Dec 2022

Die Studie vergleicht die Pläne Deutschlands für den Ausbau der LNG-Importinfrastruktur mit dem tatsächlichen Bedarf an Importen. Die Analyse kommt zu dem Ergebnis, dass die Pläne Deutschlands massiv überdimensioniert und nicht mit dem Pfad zur Klimaneutralität vereinbar sind. Deutschlands Klimaschutzziele verlangen eine deutliche Reduktion des Gasverbrauchs und die geplante Infrastruktur riskiert entweder große finanzielle Verluste durch eine geringe Auslastung, oder stellt das Einhalten des Pfads zur Klimaneutralität in Frage.
