Shift to Gas: A Contribution on the Path to Sustainability

In order for the global community to achieve its goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°C – the mandate reached at COP21 – low-emission alternatives must be quickly embraced and integrated. Natural gas offers a quick, relatively clean, and inexpensive interim step in the global transition from high CO2 emissions fossil fuels to renewable energy sources.

This paper examines the implications and potential benefits of the shift to gas conversion.
