Learn more on how EU can achieve clean energy for all and decarbonise with gas in heating, power generation and transport.
Quick wins for the climate are possible with gas. The required technology and infrastructure are already in place to switch to gas in all sectors – heating, power generation and transport.
Creating the low-carbon energy world of the future needs new ideas: electrification is not the silver bullet. Innovative gas technologies such as power-to-gas and fuel cells, provide solutions for the challenges of the energy transition.
Power-to-gas is an innovative technology that converts surplus electricity into renewable gas. It is the ideal solution to store excess electricity using the existing gas infrastructure.
Fuel cells & Micro-combined heat and power (micro-CHPs) are highly efficient technologies that provide you with secure and clean energy. You can use them to produce your own heat and electricity at home, plus, you can provide surplus electricity to your local grid.
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) will remain an important option to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, particularly in the medium and long term.
Biogas: Creating a sustainable tomorrow with waste from today. There is no limit to blending gas with more and more biogas.
Tried and tested processes:
Biogas from food waste…
Modern gas heating systems are an efficient way to achieve the EU targets. The EU labelling highlights the efficiency of modern gas technologies. Switching from an old oil-fired boiler to a class ‘A’ gas condensing boiler increases efficiency by up to 65%. Micro-CHPs and gas heat pumps rank even better at A++.
New gas heating systems are the most economic way to meet the climate goals: With 80% of the current building stock expected to be still in place in 2050, gas heating systems will play a crucial role in this retrofitting environment. Upgrading outdated heating systems can help customers achieve quick, lasting wins between investment costs and energy savings, while requiring no additional structural changes to homes.
