The gas infrastructure enables secure supply even at the lowest temperatures. The comparison of heating technologies must take into account that the demand for heat in Germany is seasonally very
fluctuates. The generation, storage, and grid infrastructure must not only provide the required maximum thermal output on a seasonal basis, but also during extreme winters. Hydrogen can absorb peak heat loads that would massively challenge the power system if electrification were to be widespread.
