Natural Gas is
Essential For Improving Our
AGA's comprehensive and detailed analysis demonstrates that incorporating natural gas, advanced gas technologies and infrastructure to achieve economy-wide net-zero emissions by 2050 is not just a choice but an essential part of getting there.
The Path Forward
- Energy Efficiency and Improved Energy Management
- Advanced Gas End-use Technologies
- Renewable Gases
- Methane Mitigation Technologies and Strategies
- Negative Emissions Technologies
- Infrastructure Modernization
- Workforce Development
Emissions from the natural gas distribution system have declined 70% since 1990.
As little as 0.1%
Local distribution systems release as little as 0.1% of the natural gas they deliver.
Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Home Energy Use (Metric Tons per Year)
Carbon dioxide emissions from residences using natural gas for space heating, water heating, cooking and clothes drying are about 18% lower than those attributable to an all-electric home.
More Families Heat With Natural Gas
For the last five years, more than 500,000 families have signed up for natural gas space heating, rather than electric heat pumps.
