Natural Gas in a Decarbonizing World - NGDW
CPE Credits Awarded: 2
Categories: The Natural Gas Industry , Online Training
Natural Gas in a Decarbonizing World is an online training course about roles for natural gas and the pipeline and storage infrastructure in a world where national energy policies increasingly require emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases to be minimized or eliminated. We explore the potential role of natural gas as a transitional fuel, reducing carbon emissions by substituting for other dirtier fossil fuels. We also look beyond fossil fuels, to identify roles for the transportation and storage infrastructure, handling natural gas substitutes produced from renewable sources or by using renewable energy.
There are no pre-requisites for this course and no advance preparation is required.

You will learn to:
- Point out the advantages and disadvantages of natural gas compared to other energy sources in a low-carbon energy policy environment
- Identify how existing natural gas storage and transmission infrastructure could be repurposed to handle non-fossil-fuel energy
- Select the key reasons why natural gas is preferable to other fossil fuels in a decarbonizing world
- Recognize the potential of natural gas to complement renewable power generation
- Distinguish between possible applications of natural gas in road transportation
- Identify the drivers behind the adoption of natural gas as a shipping fuel
- Distinguish between biogas and biomethane, and identify how they are produced
- Identify how wind and solar energy could be used to create combustible gases, and why this would be of benefit
Practice exercises and self-assessment quizzes are included to help reinforce key topics introduced throughout the course.
A comprehensive final test will be given at the end of the course.
