Gas usage remained below average in German households and industry last week, the federal network regulator said on Thursday as it announced its latest weekly consumption data.

Households and small- and medium-sized enterprises consumed 608 gigawatt hours per day (GWh/day) in the 41st calendar week versus the 2018-2021 average for that corresponding week of 881 GWh/day, the Bundesnetzagentur regulator said.

Consumption in industry stood at 1,152 GWh/day compared with an average 1,526 GWh/day, the data showed. (Reporting by Christoph Steitz, Writing by Rachel More, Editing by Maria Sheahan)
