Thermal Assets: Supply gap for power generation?

Thursday, 10 March

7:30 am - 8:35 am (CST) / 10/mar/2022 01:30 pm - 10/mar/2022 02:35 pm

The decarbonization of the power sector will transform the role of thermal assets. Increasing renewable penetration will reduce the need for thermal generation. At the same time, thermal plants will remain necessary in the medium term to back up variable renewables and ensure supply security. How will decarbonization impact thermal plants’ operation and business? How will new developments allow conventional thermal technologies (hydrogen, carbon capture, bioenergy) to remain part of a low-carbon power system?
