Hungary’s energy supply is secure, the prime minister’s chief of staff said on Thursday.
Even if the country received not a single molecule of gas during this period, Hungary still has enough gas stored to last six months, Gergely Gulyás told a regular government press briefing.
He said Hungary has significant storage capacities and high storage levels, and it has also made significant gas purchases.
Meanwhile, Gulyás said that whereas solar panel installations were feeding the energy into the electricity network, current regulations would have to be changed because the network cannot take in any more energy until a major upgrade is carried out. The requirement to feed the electricity back into the network will be suspended in the case of new applications for solar panels, he added.
