Description de l'événement


The natural gas market seems to be at a crossroad. The emergence of new supply sources, the comeback of coal and the deployment of intermittent power generation, the decline of domestic production in the EU and the severe fall in oil and gas prices are the new drivers of the economics of gas. Despite these changes, gas is and will remain a central pillar of the world energy mix. The second edition of this international conference, organized by the Chair on the Economics of Natural Gas, will shed lights on these new issues, by bringing together researchers in economics, finance and econometrics.
