"Growing up I often complained to my parents about what we were learning in university.  I questioned when I would ever actually need to use courses like calculus.

New Online Training Course - Natural Gas in a Decarbonizing World

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.

  • 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
