RT9 – Role of gas in the energy mix in a volatile world
Monday, 10 July 13:30 - 15:00 (Hall 7)


Global energy demand is forecasted to increase over the next decades due to economic growth in emerging countries and population increase, with fossil fuels remaining the main source of energy by 2035. At the same time it becomes crucial to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to decrease climate change impact, while waiting for new energies to be technically ready and economical to replace fossil energies. 

Could natural gas be the key actor for the energy mix evolution? Its price evolution, its accessibility, its smaller CO2 impact and its better acceptability could make it the energy mix leader for the transition period. But what will be the necessary conditions?
