The Role of Gas in South Africa’s Path to Net-Zero

Lucas Chaumontet Kesh Mudaly Fiona Tokple Shannon Clacey

The Role of Gas in South Africa’s Path to Net-Zero analyses how gas can enable the integration of renewable energy at scale in the power sector, the phase-out of coal as a feedstock in the production of synthetic fuels (synfuels), the phase-out of coal and diesel as energy sources in broader industry, and the transition away from diesel in heavy transport. South Africa’s gas consumption will need to ramp down over time to ensure the country can achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
