The new Government has renewed its commitment to net zero and progress is continuing apace in reforms for power sector decarbonisation and to somewhat of a lesser extent, to decarbonise our heating through electrification, hydrogen and zero carbon heat networks. However the energy crisis is also seeing the re-introduction of effectively a Strategic Reserve of coal plants and some of the most extreme spark spreads seen for a long time.

In this context, this panel will ask:

  • What is the role of existing gas assets in the power and heat sectors? Do we need a clearer strategy for their role going forward?
  • What is the role, if any, of new gas assets, including CHP?
  • What will be the different decarbonisation paths of gas generation and how do we prevent stranded assets?
