A clean source of energy
Environmental effects can occur on a local scale (noise, urban air pollution and changes in the landscape); on a regional scale (acid deposition); and on a global scale (potential global warming and ozone-layer depletion).
The use of natural gas, the combustion of which has lower emissions and can be used very efficiently,gives an important contribution to the reduction of these environmental effects.
Its use is growing for power generation and it is the fuel of choice for high efficiency cogeneration, providing significant energy efficiency and energy saving opportunities. Using natural gas can also improve urban air quality, including through use as a motor vehicle fuel, and reduce acid deposits. Natural gas can also be used in energy schemes in combination with renewable energy sources.
