Course description

Natural Gas in a Decarbonizing World is an online training course about roles for natural gas and the pipeline and storage infrastructure in a world where national energy policies increasingly require emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases to be minimized or eliminated. We explore the potential role of natural gas as a transitional fuel, reducing carbon emissions by substituting for other dirtier fossil fuels. We also look beyond fossil fuels, to identify roles for the transportation and storage infrastructure, handling natural gas substitutes produced from renewable sources or by using renewable energy.

 

Suitability - Who should attend?

A certificate of completion will be awarded upon scoring at least an 80% on the 20 question multiple choice final exam.
