The 17 chapters are divided into two main sections: a review of all current generation plants, and concepts for new advanced reactor design and safety. A major energy transition is under way, creating opportunities while increasing uncertainty and developing the need to ensure sustainability, affordability, inclusiveness and security.

The Global Future Council on Energy will deliver a vision of the future of energy, help define potential action to positively shape related developments, and contribute to incubating relevant projects.This book assesses the impact of energy transitions on the future of natural gas in the EU energy mix.

As we approachthe requirement to sharply decrease CO₂ and other GHG emissions means that the role of gas infrastructure in the EU and beyond will change drastically. Research into renewable energy, batteries, carbon capture and storage, the electric grid and natural gas have sprung up around campus, helping to move the world to a more sustainable future.
