Event Details

With weaker energy demand in the short-term, cost reductions for renewables gaining a lot of interest, and pressures to reduce CO2 in the long-term, can the prospects for growth in natural gas be realised? Yet new sources of supply, both shale gas in USA and LNG projects around the world, are proving robust. And the IEA’s 2°C “450” scenario has world natural gas demand 15% greater in 2040 than 2013.

Natural gas’s role in the global energy transition is one of the most interesting, potentially having more dynamic factors affecting its supply and demand than other energy sources. In this seminar, we shall be exploring several of these facets, and there will be good scope for participants to debate the issues with panellists as well.

In addition, the seminar will also feature, as usual, the annual UK winter gas outlook.

Speakers

 

  • John Feddersen, Aurora Energy Research
