    German economy minister: power supply secure for the winter

    December 8, 2022 - dpa


      JohannesburgGermany's Economy Minister Robert Habeck has reiterated that he believes the country's power supply is secure this winter, in the wake of a Russian gas supply cut due to the war in Ukraine.

      There is no risk of blackouts due to a shortage of capacity, Habeck said on Thursday in Johannesburg, after a visit to the South African state-owned power utility Eskom.

      Germany is even in a position to help out France with electricity, he said.

      "The availability of energy for electrical power generation is assured for this winter," Habeck said.

      However, he conceded that the government was worried about the possibility of cyberattacks disrupting supply. "We have to try to prevent that with everything we can muster," he said.

      The minister has been in Africa since Sunday, travelling to South Africa after a stop in Namibia.
