Major Future Growth Potential for Gas within Europe’s Power Generation Sector

According to the recently published United Nations-led IPCC report on climate change, natural gas and modern natural gas-fired power generation (in particular more efficient combined-cycle gas turbines – or CCGT) have a major role to play in reducing climate-harming emissions over the next two decades. In a stroke, by replacing all older coal-fired power plants with new, combined-cycle gas-fired generation – carbon output and other harmful emissions can be reduced by as much as 50%. And yet why does the natural gas industry seem to be struggling to drive its convincing energy message home to consumers and energy policy makers?

In a recent interview conducted with Gastech News we asked Energy Exemplar’s Regional Director for Europe, Dr Christos Papadopoulos, if large-scale integration of renewables into electricity grids was affecting uptake of gas-fired power generation in Europe. Dr Papadopoulos responded;

“What I believe is crucial to the future of gas power production in Europe is the question of pricing, and in particular the relative prices of natural gas and competing fuels such as coal. But also the carbon pricing in the EU Emissions Trading System, which at the moment is very low.”

Driven by what some believe to be over-generous subsidies, renewable sources of electricity generation – including offshore & onshore wind and solar power – have grown rapidly in many European countries, including Germany, who under the ‘Energiewende’ are driving forward bold plans to increase the use of renewably-generated electricity by 2020. European Union demand for natural gas has fallen dramatically by around 13% since 2010 – and gas has struggled to find favour across many European countries in recent years as green energy subsidies and cheaper imported coal have undermined the fuel.

However, this year’s 29th annual European Autumn Gas Conference (EAGC) aims to tackle head-on the challenges the natural gas industry faces in convincing policy makers that the fuel is the only clear choice as a partner fuel alongside renewable energy to a low-carbon world, through a realignment of market design and competitiveness. Dr Papadopoulos supports;

“The fact is that under the current market conditions, I believe that there are not the proper market signals in place for such kinds of investments [into gas]. What is basically needed… is a new market design that is going to give the correct pricing as for investments on flexible power plants.”

Dr Papadopoulos will be hosting an Energy Exemplar sponsored Champagne Round Table at this year’s EAGC on ‘The Potential Role of Gas in the New Power Sector Environment.
