MIT Future of Natural Gas Study

ACSF is a co-sponsor of a comprehensive three-year study on the role of natural gas in the American economy initiated by the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI). The study, launched in 2008, was carried out by a multidisciplinary team of 30 MIT faculty members, researchers and graduate students, with advice from 16 leaders from industry, government and environmental groups. Their final report reviews the future of natural gas through 2050 from the perspectives of technology, economics, politics, national security and the environment.

The final report was released in June 2011 and is available from MITEI. See also this New York Times story.
