SAOGA - Natural Gas Webinar: Supporting the Integration of Renewables in South Africa - 17 June 2021

Natural Gas Webinar - Supporting the Integration of Renewables in South Africa

The South African Oil and Gas Alliance (SAOGA), along with Shell will host a Natural Gas: Supporting the integration of Renewables in South Africa webinar for the SAOGA membership and interested parties, on 17 June 2021, 14:00-15:15.  The aim of the webinar series is to share information and knowledge of natural gas and its potential role as a transition fuel in the South African market. It is anticipated that natural gas will feature more prominently in South Africa’s energy mix, as the Government aims to diversify the country’s primary energy sources, currently dominated by coal, to improve security of energy supply, promote economic development and reduce SA’s overall carbon footprint. Natural gas has significant potential as a new energy source for SA, with its ability to complement a growing renewable energy sector and foster reduced emissions through coal to gas switching in the power sector.

The webinar will provide participants with material, packaged to deliver concise, content-rich presentations sharing lessons beyond South Africa on natural gas and its role in supporting renewables and balancing electricity grids which may provide insight for South Africa. While gas is available in limited quantities in certain parts of the country, South Africa is planning to make greater use of the resource nationally through LNG imports and potentially through domestic gas resources. SAOGA sees value for there to be a broader appreciation of the benefits of natural gas and its supporting role to renewables.  The discussion will not cover the recent RMIPPPP or the impending 3000MW LNG IPP procurement.

Please ensure you register on time so as not to miss out on this Insightful opportunity.
