Gas Pressure: Exploring the case for gas-fired power in South Africa
This webinar, organized in partnership with WWF South Africa, provided participants with a first look at findings from the new International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) report Gas Pressure: Exploring the case for gas-fired power in South Africa, presenting key takeaways and recommendations.
Within the power sector, this report examines the increasing risks associated with natural gas, the improvements in alternatives, and ways the energy mix could evolve. From this, the report provides recommendations on how South Africa could alleviate the constrained power system, reduce the chances of stranded assets, and meet climate change objectives.
Through a panel discussion and a Q&A session, participants engaged in a debate on whether South Africa should be investing in a gas-to-power sector now, given the disruptive changes in the energy landscape.
