Speaker, "Decarbonizing the Natural Gas System," The Financial Research Institute Hot Topic Hotline, Missouri University

Speaking Engagements

Chris Peterson will present "Decarbonizing the Natural Gas System," for the FRI’s Hot Topic Hotline webinar series at Missouri University on Thursday, July 14, 2022.

Reduction of carbon emissions is a focal point of federal and state energy and environmental policies. Natural gas has been responsible for significant reductions in emissions from electricity generation as utilities substituted away from coal- to gas-fired plants. However, the natural gas system as a whole still accounts for a meaningful percentage of carbon emissions in the US. Policies aimed at achieving zero net-carbon emissions, or even more stringent clean emission targets, pose a challenge for the natural gas industry and industry regulators.

This webinar will discuss technologies and processes to achieve net-zero and clean natural gas products (including carbon capture and RNG), market and policy challenges for implementing these technologies, and regulatory options for facilitating and encouraging a transition to clean(er) natural gas options.
