Gas/LNG as Alternative Resource for Electricity Generation Master Class logoImportance of Attending the Gas/LNG as Alternative Resource for Electricity Generation Master Class

Effective training is crucial in today’s fast-paced global energy market. The emerging dynamics and paradigm shifts seen in the energy sector, especially in the development of unconventional gas sources, has become a key issue and it is more crucial than ever for energy market participants and policymakers to keep abreast of the global and local developments. Gas is increasingly playing a major role in electricity generation and gas-fired technologies such as combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) have become the technology of choice in many parts of the world. Understanding the economics of gas-to-power vis-à-vis other generation technologies hence is pivotal to investment planning, power system economics and policy design.

The Master Class aims to provide a comprehensive view of gas/LNG from the context of electricity generation perspective. It will introduce the issues related to global hydrocarbon development and how they could impact on regional and local power markets, presenting the question on the role and feasibility of gas/LNG as an alternative fuel in power generation. The critical drivers – generation economics, global oil & gas markets and geopolitical issues will be examined. The course will focus on the fundamental economics of gas-to-power, other conventional generation technologies, as well as renewable generations such as wind, solar and biomass. Throughout the course, participants will have the opportunity to engage in highly interactive discussions and power investment analysis from the perspective of a gas-to-power project developer. Practical case examples will be presented and analysed where participants will get first-hand experience in carrying out investment analytics in the power market. The analytical work will also cover power market dynamics, including the implications of gas-to-power on the electricity grid and its interaction with the wider installation of renewables. This is not only important for investors to understand but is also essential for policymakers as the energy policies relevant to gas also need to reflect the policy requirements of renewables and carbon emissions. Last but not least, the course will cover the current trends of gas and gas-to-power sectors, and present likely scenarios on future outlook of gas and its role within the power industry.

Targeted Industries

This course focuses on the power generation sector and in particular the examination of the role of gas/LNG as an alternative fuel for power generation. However the interconnectedness of oil & gas industry and downstream power generation has become more significant because of the major role gas could play in electricity generation in terms of securing energy supply, lowering carbon emissions and provide competitive power prices. Therefore the course is relevant to all energy related industries including:
- Electricity utilities
- Electricity system operators
- Electricity trading
- Oil and gas companies
- Energy intensive industries (e.g. steel)
