Bill Kemp on Gas to Power at the WGC 2018, June 29th
Renewables and gas can complement each other well in the most cost-effective pathways toward a sustainable energy system. Gas is better suited to meet more intense energy needs in industrial, heating and transportation end uses, and to provide extended duration backup for renewables. Current and emerging gas technologies (with renewable gas) can help greatly to increase energy efficiency and reduce or eliminate Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. A balanced portfolio that leverages the strengths of the major energy sources can meet COP 21’s long-term decarbonization goals at much lower cost, with greater energy system reliability and resilience.
Bill Kemp will present at the World Gas Conference on June 29th
