The Role of Gases in the Energy Transition – should we consider Europe to be a special case?

During the seminar the following topics were discussed: - the consequences of the EU decarbonisation policy, especially its goals to achieve major greenhouse gas reductions by 2030 and carbon neutrality (Net Zero emissions) by 2050; - the gas demand changes in major energy markets where governments have declared carbon neutrality targets, with others having made COP21 commitments, and how this will impact on the future development of pipeline gas and LNG trade; - the regional and national issues influencing the future of gases (coal to gas switching; greenhouse gas and especially methane emissions from natural gas and LNG including carbon offsets, affordability of traded gas, renewable/decarbonised gas availability and cost; carbon capture, usage and storage; national carbon pricing and taxation as well as carbon border adjustment mechanisms). Moderator: Leonid Grigoryev (School of World Economy Academic Supervisor, HSE)
