Success Story

The United States Department of Energy (USDOE), funded by Power Africa, collaborated with the United States Energy Association (USEA) to convene a group of natural gas experts to write a handbook on natural gas and LNG project  development for African countries. Under the guidance of the USDOE and USEA, the participants spent five intensive days collaborating using the Book Sprint method to complete an LNG handbook. Their commitment and consistent participation was essential to the success of the “Understanding Natural Gas and LNG Options” handbook.

"The most significant US energy policy update in a decade, the Energy Policy Modernization Act 2016, will be introduced into the new Congress in January 2017. With provisions for accelerated permitting for oil and gas drilling, construction of export LNG terminals, as well as energy efficiency standards and grid-integration of renewables, the outlook for US energy security is bright, according to Barry Worthington, Executive Director of the US Energy Association (USEA). He predicts that business, not policy, will be the major driver of decarbonisation."
