Natural gas is set to play a massive part in Europe’s energy future

It has been two years since EU member states agreed on an ambitious target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80-95% by 2050 compared with levels reached in the 1990s.
 
 
Dec. 13, 2011 - PRLog -- *In December 2011, the EU is set to publish its Energy 2050 Roadmap which will include various scenarios regarding a low carbon energy system. Additionally, the recent nuclear disaster in Japan has prompted traditional European power generators, such as Germany, to renounce its nuclear power development by 2021 in favour of gas-fired power and renewable energy. Natural gas is the cleanest-burning fossil fuel and can make a significant and immediate contribution to cutting Europe’s CO2 emissions in an affordable manner since the gas network infrastructure is readily available.

This has also been reported by the European Gas Advocacy Forum (EGAF) published earlier this year. The report presents a cost-efficient roadmap where replacing coal with natural gas in the power sector is combined with a growth in renewable energy sources and a further development and maturing of emission-reducing technologies like carbon capture and storage.

With this in mind, SMi Group’s Gas to Power conference will enable gas and power companies to come together and discuss key aspects underlying the development of gas and power convergence.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to review the inherent technical, commercial, regulatory and environmental challenges relating to how the gas network infrastructure can make a greater contribution to energy supplies.
