The use of natural gas for electricity generation in the UK may have to decline significantly over the next 30 years, according to a new study. Without carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologyBy diversifying the electricity mix, renewables and efficiency can provide an important hedge against future natural gas price increases . Thus, while natural gas has a role to play in our future electric mix, a natural gascentered energy pathway would also carry significant economic, environmental, and public health risks.
Instead of natural gas being a bridge fuel (having least carbon intensity) decarbonized natural gas, mainly in the form of hydrogen, must become part of the carbon free energy world. While fostering decarbonised gas is mandatory in the long run, it is also important to optimise decarbonisation efforts for the immediate future.The boom in natural gas production has undeniable benefits for the United States. But two policy analysts argue that embracing a monolithic energy future dominated by gas will mean the loss of a golden opportunity: Leveraging cheap, abundant gas to create a sustainable future

Reenvisioning The Role For Natural Gas In A Clean Energy Future in General Energy News 04/02/2019 To meet climate goals, enormous changes to the world's energy systems are required.Research highlights 'lack of a clear vision of the future role for gas' in the UK's energy system, and cautions that, without CCS, a second 'dash for gas' could compromise decarbonisation ambitions. Gas has only a limited role as a 'bridging fuel' to a low carbon future, according to
The future role of natural gas in the UK,However, using natural gas is not a zerocarbon process, even when the carbon is removed ('reformed'), captured and stored. The CCC will continue to monitor how technological developments could impact the future role of hydrogen in the UK's transition to a lowcarbon economy. Lord Deben, Chairman of the Committee on Climate Change (CCCThe Future Role of Gas. The use of hydrogen in place of natural gas could offer a route to widespread decarbonisation of gas distribution networks. network capability' provides a holistic view which shows the critical role the gas network will play in enabling the UK's future energy ambition.
This report by noted academic experts based at UCL and the Universities of Sussex and Warwick demonstrates how natural gas, including shale gas, can play only a very limited role in meeting the UK's energy needs if the UK is to meet the decarbonisation targets it has already committed to.1. Introduction. The future for natural gas infrastructure is currently uncertain. Gas networks are used across the world to transport natural gas to industrial, commercial and residential consumers, providing energy for a range of uses including power generation, industrial process heat and chemical industries, space and water heating and transport.
Natural Gas Uses Gas is a vital part of our economy providing heat, electricity and raw materials With North Sea gas production declining the UK will become dependent on foreign sources Natural gas is a vital feedstock in the manufacturing sector It is nearly impossible to get through a day without using multiple products that contain oil and gas Natural gas currently provides more than 80% ofDeclining gas production raises (political) questions on the future role of gas: •growing imports of natural gas: avoid dependence on limited number of suppliers •exploit potential of unconventional sources of gas or strive for other sources of energy (combined with additional efforts on energy efficiency)
The role of natural gas. Providing more energy to people while reducing its impact on the planet is one of the 21st century's greatest challenges. Natural gas can help to meet that challenge by reducing emissions and improving air quality when it replaces coal and diesel.Oil & Gas industry. as booming shale oilfields lead to glut of natural gas.

UK now relies on imports for almost half natural gas demand. UK government intends to boost domestic gas production in order to limit falls in gas related jobs, investment and tax receipts. Meeting climate change targets internationally means that some gas reservesCited by: 6
Natural Gas. As the UK moves away from coal to a cleaner future, gas is playing an important role in helping reduce emissions and keeping the lights on. Read more. Natural Gas Upstream Operations. Equinor is committed to developing the UK Continental Shelf, andOfgem's Future Insights Series The Decarbonisation of Heat Abstract: The decarbonisation of heat is arguably the biggest challenge facing UK energy policy over the next few decades. In this paper we consider the nature of heat demand and supply today and some of the decarbonisation options that are presently being discussed by policy makers.
The UK Gas Networks Role in a 2050 Whole Energy System. In 2016, ENA's Gas Futures Group commissioned KPMG to carry out a study to consider the decarbonisation challenge which is driving a change in how we heat homes and businesses in a low carbon future.Natural gas is a key part of Equinor's energy partnership with the UK. For decades, the UK has secured the majority of its imported gas from Norway, through pipeline gas. In fact, this year imports from Norway covers around 50% of UK domestic gas consumption. This is enough to heat or power 8
