Carbon in transition


Carbon in transition
The pace of renewables integration into Africa’s electricity supply industry and global climate change concerns are driving a reevaluation in the continent’s long-term energy mix. However, there is a real need in Africa for gas to play a continued significant role as the ‘transition fuel’ and to supply power plants, industrial and other users over the coming decade (and beyond). The opening session will thus set out the case for gas in AIX’s distinctively analytical but straight speaking manner.

12h00 to 13h30 BST

Part 1: African gas trends

Chair: Jon Marks, Chairman, CbI and Head of Consultancy, African Energy

Results and analysis from the African Energy Survey which asks the AIX community to comment on upstream, gas-to-power and LNG challenges facing industries along Africa’s gas value chain will kick-start the session. This will open a debate on global carbon transition, the future shape of global industries (including LNG export prospects, FLNG, gas-to-power schemes etc) and how changing trends in policy-making and investment are impacting on gas producers.

Part 2: African gas policy

Government and regulator’s perspectives on industrialisation programmes, gas masterplans and local content strategies. What do administrations want from gas schemes? In the carbon transition are they at risk of finding themselves with stranded assets?
