United Kingdom gas markets long-term outlook H2 2015

United Kingdom gas markets long-term outlook H2 2015

Report summary

Economic activity, temperature and coal to gas competition will continue to influence gas demand over the short-term. Continued growth in renewable capacity and an increase in nuclear generation capacity will limit gas demand in the power sector post 2024.  Furthermore, a limited scope for coal to gas switching, alongside the switch to more efficient CCGT plants, will result in lower usage in the power sector and add to the long-term decline of gas demand in non-power sectors. Total UK gas demand is forecast to decline at an average rate of 0.4% a year from 2015 to 2035.
