EU natural gas demand set to rise by 6%
EU natural gas consumption is expected to increase by 6% this year compared with 2015 to around 447 Bcm, industry group Eurogas said Friday, as gas demand in Europe continues a robust trend following year-on-year growth last year.
The rise is due to increased demand for gas in power generation following signs of revival in industrial activity, as well as greater use of gas in transport, Eurogas said.
The group pointed to the rise of gas use in power generation in France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands as a key factor supporting the expected yearly demand increase.
