Axel Wietfeld appointed President for gas storages at GIE

Axel Wietfeld has been appointed as the new President for gas storages at Gas Infrastructure Europe (GIE), the association representing the interests of European gas infrastructure operators active in gas transmission, gas storage and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) regasification.

Since 2016, Mr Wietfeld has been Managing Director of Uniper Energy Storage, one of Europe’s major storage system operators. Prior to that, he held a number of executive positions in the gas supply and renewables businesses of E.ON/Uniper in Germany, the United Arab Emirates, Hungary and South Africa.

The importance of storage in the context of the increasing need for flexibility has been positively recognised in the European Commission’s latest strategies on Hydrogen and Energy System Integration – and Mr Wietfeld is committed for the European gas storages to deliver on that.
