International Gas & Power Summit

 

About

The International Gas and Power Summit is an annual gathering of key gas and power industry leaders and heads of international organisations to discuss the most relevant issues affecting the gas and power sectors.

Over the past years, the Summit has been the circle for policy makers and industry leaders to exchange views on ways and means to address a large spectrum of gas and power related issues: markets development, regulatory frameworks, players’ strategies, environmental challenges, impacting exogenous factors, etc.

In order to get the utmost benefit of the Summit, organizers have favoured genuine debate with the participation of high caliber speakers from gas and power industries and other institutions (Cheniere, EDF, Edison, EON, ENEL, Engie, Gas Natural Fenosa, Gazprom, Gas Exporting Countries Forum, General Electric, IFPEN, International Energy Agency, Qatar Petroleum, Sonatrach, Sonelgaz, Statoil, Tellurian Inc. Total, etc.)

The Summit is chaired by Nordine Ait Laoussine, President of Nalcosa and Former Algerian Minister of Energy.

Agenda

Over the past years, the gas industry witnessed significant shifts with the emergence of new supply sources including shale gas from the US, the fierce competition of coal in the power sector, the decline fall in oil and gas prices, changes in traditional trade flows, etc. At the same time, most scenarios see natural gas to play bigger role during the energy transition in the making than other fossil fuels.

The EU power sector has been lately hit by both macroeconomic and industry-specific factors that have led to overcapacity and low prices. Such development brought a host of consequences including significant drop of utilities market capitalization (resulting in shareholder value destruction), disappearance of asset-related competitive advantages, requirement of new competencies to compete in new growth areas such as renewable energy and new downstream activities.

Last year, the 22nd International Gas & Power Summit featured senior level executives from the gas and power industries as well as non-industry stakeholders. It addressed the most topical issues facing both industries and looked at ways and means to implement sustainable energy policies and to successfully drive natural gas demand in an increasingly carbon-constrained world.
