Smart Gas – The conference on how we can make the most out of the future energy mix

Meld meg på

Due to the current gas market the former conference “Small scale LNG" has shifted focus to "Smart Gas Mix".

We believe the future includes a variety of energy carriers, and we believe gas, in many forms/shapes/configurations will play an important role in the years to come.

Energy mix

The latest developments demonstrate that natural gas is one of several possible energy sources. The use of hydrogen, methanol and biogas, in the combination with the use of battery technology in a hybrid system or in a pure battery powered unit.

The following outline the main topics on which we would like to encourage you to submit abstract

  • Regulatory developments and the environment
  • LNG in the smart gas configurations
  • Hydrogen in the Smart Gas Mix
  • Biogas

Energy mix - best practice

The conference aims to gather the leading technical and commercial players working with fuel opportunities for a greener future. Players who wish to be a part of and influencing the green shift. It is a global challenge and the need to unite the environmental interests is vital to meet the global challenges related to our environment.

The program is beeing processed and will be published in February 2017

Due to the current gas market the former conference “Small scale LNG" has shifted focus to "Smart Gas". 

We believe the future includes a variety of energy carriers, and we believe gas, in many   forms/shapes/configurations will play an important role in the years to come. 

The latest developments demonstrate that natural gas is one of several possible energy sources. The use of hydrogen, methanol and biogas, in the combination with the use of battery technology in a hybrid system or in a pure battery powered unit. The opportunities are many and require smart thinking - "Smart Gas"

Please take this opportunity to submit your abstract and get the opportunity to network with the global thought leaders in the "Smart Gas" world.

The following outline the main topics on which we would like to encourage you to submit abstracts  

 

Regulatory developments and the environment

Regulatory authorities play an important role in developing safe and efficient solutions. The cooperation between the industry and authorities must contribute to developing smart solutions.

How can regulatory authorities better participate to develop the industry rather than slowing the development down? 

What are the developments related to safe storage and handling of LNG, hydrogen and other fuels from a regulatory perspective?

With reference to the other sessions from the conference (Hydrogen, Biogas and "Smart gas configurations") - what are the challenges we face today and in future from a regulatory point of view? What are the safety challenges? What are the challenges from a climate/environmental point of view?

What is missing in the current system/setup/sceme? How can the equipment/system manufacturers and regulatory environments cooperate even better to achieve "Smarter" solutions?

The development shows complex technical solutions - is this a challenge? 

Smart gas configurations

Here we would like to see presentations on how the energy mix and power solutions are expected to develop, for buses, cars, ships and industry. Presentations can focus on one or several of these power consumers. Will LNG play an important role in the future energy mix? Can this go together with reaching climate goals from Paris? Will LNG survive in competition with renewable energy sources?

We would like to see examples of good hybrid energy and power solutions. For example, can LNG fuel be combined with batteries and fuel cells to make sustainable energy solutions in ships? Will biogas or hydrogen be future ship fuels? Pros and cons?  

Value chain considerations comparing the sustainability of different energy sources and smart gas/ hybrid configurations are also relevant presentations for this session. 

Hydrogen in the Smart Gas Mix

We believe hydrogen will play a strong part as a future fuel for transport, and would like to see presentations on:

What are the properties of hydrogen and what challenges do they pose?

Why is hydrogen considered as a key fuel for the future? What are the possibilities and challenges with hydrogen?

Will there be a need for CO2 handling from hydrogen production?

Where will hydrogen be produced, and from which sources, and are there commercial solutions available for production and storage of hydrogen?

How will hydrogen be stored and distributed to the end users?

Will there be new technologies and new players in the market to supply hydrogen? Or will it be offered by the traditional gas suppliers?

How can hydrogen be applied effectively in cars, trucks and ships?

We welcome more general presentations within these fields, if plans for a pilot test or full scale operation can be included, it is even better. 

Biogas 
Biogas can be produced from a range of alternative sources.

How will the role of biogas in the future energy mix develop? Will usage of biogas expanpafor Will biogas be used not only for cars, buses and heavy duty trucks but also for ships? Will sufficient sources be available to support a growing biogas industry and from where will the biogas be sourced? Will biogas production be able to match the cost competitiveness of traditional fuels? > Will new technology developments contribute to the cost effectiveness of biogas production or is Governmental subsidies required to secure competitiveness?

Is circular economy the solution to the green shift?
