Gas transmission systems

Natural gas is the cleanest fossil fuel and will remain available in the long term. The versatile use of natural gas, also in combination with renewable energy sources, lays the foundation for reliable, sustainable energy supplies. Transmission system operators (TSO) ensure safe and reliable gas transmission in line with demand. They therefore make a key contribution to the security of supplies in Germany and Europe and to supporting the energy transition.

Gas transmission systems carry gas considerable distances at high pressures from the production fields to individual sales regions. Via downstream distribution systems, gas transmission systems ensure virtually full area coverage for natural gas customers. Furthermore, the natural gas network offers the potential for storing excess power from renewable sources for significant periods via conversion processes such as “Power-to-gas”.
