An interview with Franziska Holz, research associate at the Department of Energy, Transportation, Environment at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW) Berlin, is presented, on topics including the link between the earthquakes and natural gas production in the Netherlands, and the possible effect of the reduction in the output for European natural gas supply.
