What is the future for energy? Are you renewables, LNG or pipelines advocate?
Søren Juel Hansen
Head of Development
"Pipelines, renewables, green and blue hydrogen with CCS."
Business Development Director - Power, Oil and Gas
Andrade Gutierrez Engenharia
"I believe that one solution only will not prevail. It will be a combination of them. Solar and Wind will surely be the basis of new energy markets, due to its low cost and decarbonizing features. But storage will always be needed, and storage does not mean batteries only. Therefore, Natural Gas will be the key source to provide the baseload necessary to cope with the increasing renewables capacity, and LNG will be among the most effective ways to bring the NG to the consumption/generation centers."
Supply and Operations Director
"For a long time ahead petroleum products will be the major energy source. Renewables will have their share and meanwhile, Natural Gas in both forms will gain a big share. Natural Gas can operate as the bridge fuel towards the massive production of bio Gas."
Head of Integrity & Risks Section
"LNG is my prediction as virtual reality has really entered our lives in every aspect! Secondly, I would mention renewables."
Head of Département Pipeline Assets
"In the future, we will need more energy than ever before. Therefore a mix of all affordable energies is necessary. Because of climate change aspects, it is very important to include the environmental (damage) costs into a complete/full calculation. Nevertheless, I’m a pipeline advocate, because transportation through a pipeline is the most efficient transportation possibility."
