Gas to Power Markets Master Class - Panama City, Panama - October 26-27-28, 2016 - Research and Markets

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Gas to Power Markets Master Class" conference to their offering.

It is more crucial than ever for energy market participants and policymakers to keep abreast of developments in conventional and unconventional natural gas supplies and delivery options. Gas is increasingly playing a major role in electricity generation and gas-fired technologies such as combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT), which has become the technology of choice in many parts of the world. Understanding the economics of gas-to-power vis-à-vis other generation technologies is pivotal to investment planning, power system economics and policy design.

The workshop aims to provide a comprehensive view of gas/LNG from the context of electricity generation perspective. It will introduce the issues related to global gas developments and how they could impact on regional and local power markets, presenting the question on the role and feasibility of gas/LNG as an alternative fuel in power generation. The critical drivers, generation economics, fuel markets and geopolitical issues, will be examined. The course will focus on the fundamental economics of gas-to-power, other conventional generation technologies, as well as renewable generation such as wind, solar and biomass. Throughout the course, participants will have the opportunity to engage in highly interactive discussions and power investment analysis from the perspective of a gas-to-power project developer.

Practical case examples will be presented and analysed where participants get first-hand experience in carrying out power system planning. The analytical exercises will cover power market dynamics including treatment of system reliability, challenges of developing gas-to-power, and its interaction with the wider installation of renewables and meeting emissions targets. This is not only important for investors to understand but is also essential for policymakers as the energy policies relevant to gas also need to reflect the policy requirements of renewables and carbon emissions.

Last but not least, the course will make use of experience from Latin America to assess where and why gas-to-power projects can succeed.
