The Role of Natural Gas in Ontario's Energy Transition
October 3, 2023 (8:30 AM - 10:30 AM) (EDT)
Ontario is currently in process of procuring natural gas to help meet the provinces growing electricity shortfalls. A recent report by the Independent Electricity System Operator warns that phasing out gas-fired plants before 2030 would result in rotating blackouts and higher electricity bills.
Meanwhile, natural gas is enabling new technologies such as gas-fired hydrogen, fuel blending, and carbon capture and storage (CCS) to reduce emissions from hard-to-abate industries like steel and cement. As Ontario maps out pathways to decarbonization, this event will unpack fundamental questions around the role of natural gas in Ontario's energy transition and opportunities around CCS.
