Power sector gas burn growth: decomposition of causes
Gas consumption in the power sector is expected to grow by 34% between 2013 and 2025, from 21.4 bcfd to 28.7 bcfd in the Lower-48 states. This represents both the largest absolute and percentage growth of all of the major demand sectors. To gain a better understanding of the sources of this growth, in this report we segregate the changes in gas burn into five distinct categories, estimate the contribution of each of these changes to the overall change in the gas burn, and analyze key risks...
