Germany now gets more than 50 percent of its energy supply from Russia.With the escalation of the situation in Ukraine and the outbreak of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, Germany worries about its own energy security, so it accelerates the diversification of energy import channels.A U.S. official familiar with the matter, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters that U.S. and German officials and energy executives had decided to hold a round-table meeting in the German capital Berlin on March 31 to discuss countermeasures.The conference, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Commerce, will bring together executives from several U.S. LNG suppliers and hydrogen companies.With existing U.S. LNG export terminals already operating at full capacity and most new facilities still planned, increasing supplies to Europe won’t be easy, industry analysts say.”Industry doesn’t move at the same pace as governments, so let’s wait and see,” said a US official, referring to the prospect of the 31st roundtable.At least we will start a dialogue.”(According to Xinhua)
