Natural gas at the heart of energy transition
“Gas is now central to the energy revolution we are living through”. It was with these words that Isabelle Kocher described the dominant importance of this energy source to the strategic development of ENGIE. So why is ENGIE backing gas to kick-start the energy transition? We look at some of the answers to this question in our series of articles and interviews devoted to gas and its new uses.
Gas is a powerful lever for countering climate change
- Power generation: substituting gas for coal throughout Europe would reduce the continent’s CO2 emissions immediately by up to 81% – source: Eurogas
- Mobility: replacing diesel with gas could reduce emissions by: 100% for sulfur oxides, 90% for nitrogen oxides and 99 % for particulates
