The article examines the economic value, public acceptance and political implication of shale gas reserves in Europe Union (EU) countries and in the U.S. It opines that the immense flow of unconventional gas will be a game changer for the global power generation industry. It predicts that shale gas reserves will be undermining the economics of renewable and nuclear projects and provide reductions of carbon and other emissions than retrofitting solid fuel power plants which are expensive.
