The knowledge pool - most recent information on gas
The era of the gas industry is not over yet. This commodity will be used in the power industry for many years. The experts speaking at the jubilee conference of the Chamber of the Natural Gas Industry held within the scope of EXPO-GAS in Targi Kielce presented their arguments. The energy transformation will result in a 15% share of natural gas in the energy balance in 2040. We do not face the danger of a quick change to other, alternative energy sources.
– In 2040, there will be about 15% share of natural gas in the energy balance. In order to achieve energy sovereignty, we must fully use our own resources - said the government's plenipotentiary for . Raw Materials Policy, Minister Piotr Dziadzio during the conference. Natural gas extraction in Poland may be gradually replaced by the development of renewable energy sources. Still according to experts, gas will still play an important role in the Polish energy balance in the coming years.
The guests of the "New technologies for multi-energy" conference also referred to the security of technical solutions in green energy sector, the development directions in multi-energy concerns in the world and in Poland, and financing the energy transformation.
