The requirements for higher energy efficiency are growing across all sectors. Legal stipulations and rising energy prices, yet also the opportunity to participate in the Internet of Things are motivating business leaders to set up modern and sustainable energy management systems. Yet most businesses will have to wait before they see the utilities sector become active - especially when it comes to gas suppliers. At the same time, replacing all of one’s own meters based on self-initiative is seldom a (smart) option. Here, retrofitting is a prime example of a workable option.

Global LNG production volumes are expected to reach record-breaking 490 MMtpa in 2030. In response to this increased supply, oil majors, power plant owners and gas suppliers are looking to develop new small-scale demand, hereby opening up a new market with lower capacity than the current FSRU segment. These small-scale import terminals are being developed, with onshore cryogenic storage facilities to supply feedstock to power plants or to feed into the gas grid.

In the fast-evolving energy scenario we are experiencing, where governments’ policies and industries commitment are focused on leading the transition from a carbon based energy system to a new era of energy diversification, natural gas has played and will continue to play in the coming years a crucial role to drive the economic development limiting environmental impact. LNG is the answer to meet the rising demand for natural gas and the global LNG market has demonstrated the most dynamic and fastest growing segment of the gas industry in the last decades.

LNG bunkers are scaling up to meet demand from the big three shipping sectors – containers, dry bulk and tankers. Andrew Buckland, Principal Analyst, LNG Shipping, talks through the reasons behind this and why LNG as a bunker fuel will begin to provide a significant new source of demand for LNG. Discover which niche sector has placed an order for 27 LNG-powered vessels in the last three years and which of the three big sectors is lagging behind in term of concrete orders.

New LNG supply needs to be developed… fast. But which projects are best placed to proceed? There's a lot of competition out there as the number of proposed projects outweighs demand. Our research looks at the key milestones each project must pass in order to reach FID. This short video from Giles Farrer, Research Director, Global Gas and LNG Supply, looks at those milestones and how many projects have taken FID so far this year.

The last 18 months have been transformational for the LNG industry. After years of concern about oversupply, improved market dynamics mean that this fear has reduced. What has caused this change? The massive coal to gas switching program in China has certainly played a large part in this changing landscape.  In this short video looking at the global gas market, Massimo Di-Odoardo, Vice President, Global Gas and LNG Research, explains why China is set to become the world's largest LNG importer. He also looks at why Europe will also need to become a major importer.

Europe's gas demand has been increasing but will this level of demand be sustainable and, if so, how will it be met? Murray Douglas, Research Director, European Gas, explains how growth, underpinned by the power sector, has returned since 2014. He explores how the national coal phase out policies being enacted across Europe are leading to an increase in gas demand and reflects on the impact of coal and carbon prices. Watch the video above to discover whether current levels of European demand are sustainable.
