​Natural gas emits significantly less CO2 than coal, still widely used globally for electricity generation. It is however a fossil-fuel that would not fit in a zero-emission system. The objective of this session is to present and discuss a study on the potential role of natural gas for electricity generation through a comparison of the outcomes of two approaches: a system developed with a zero-CO2 emission target by a certain date and a system based on imposing a CO2 tax translating the social cost of carbon.
