The Role of Natural Gas as a Transitionary Fuel in Southern Africa <…>
DATE: 26 May 2022 TIME: 12h00 to 14h30 SAST (GMT+2) COST: Free-of-charge PLATFORM: Zoom Webinar <…> Pathways to net zero carbon emissions by 2050
In December 2021, the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE) released the Gas Master Plan Basecase Report for public comment and input.
Its intention was to establish baseline information to develop a Gas Master Plan roadmap for the natural gas sector in South Africa, described by DMRE Minister Gwede Mantashe as a “gamechanger” for South Africa.
Once developed, the Gas Master Plan is intended to serve as a policy instrument and roadmap for strategic, political and institutional decisions, which will guide industry investment, planning and coordinated implementation.
Further work in this area has been done in a report on “The Role of Gas in South Africa’s Path to Net-Zero” by Boston Consulting Group (BCG) for the National Business Initiative (NBI) and Business Unity South Africa (BUSA). The report, released in February 2022, assesses pathways for South Africa to decarbonise by 2050, and the potential role of gas in South Africa’s transition.
Work is also underway by African International Advisors (AIA) in association with SADC, DBSA and IDC for the development of a Regional Gas Masterplan to coordinate and integrate the planning of regional gas supply initiatives with African and SADC member countries.
This webinar will review the Gas Master Plan Basecase Report, the NBI study report and work by AIA in order to provide a better understanding of the issues and arguments for and against natural gas as a transitionary fuel in South Africa. HOSTED BY: <…> SUPPORTED BY: COMMUNITY:
