NGI Workshop — Global Competition Between Coal and Natural Gas
This one-day workshop will bring together experts on the global competition between coal and natural gas. Drawing experts from the coal and natural gas industries, governments, and academia we will discuss how different countries are making decisions between these two fuels, how global markets are developing, and how changing technology, commercial, and policy drivers may influence the future of coal and natural gas around the world.
The meeting will be limited in size to allow for meaningful audience participation and open discussion organized around a number of speakers and panels.
Topics will include:
1. Factors affecting global coal - natural gas competition
2. Coal versus gas in backing up renewables
3. Policy levers influencing coal-gas competition
4. The future of U.S. coal
We are currently finalizing workshop speakers and panelists and will release a draft agenda in August 2018. We welcome expressions of interest to either speak or attend this workshop, directed to NGI Managing Director Brad Ritts at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Stanford is roughly equidistant from the San Francisco and San Jose airports. Three major airports serve the San Francisco Bay Area, including San Francisco International (SFO), San Jose Mineta International (SJC), and Oakland International (OAK). Although San Francisco is the largest of the area airports and offers the most airlines and flights, some visitors find that San Jose’s smaller size makes it a somewhat more convenient alternative, especially for domestic flights.
