Did you know that in 2018 Global Energy demand rose 2.3 percent, the fastest pace in a decade? Natural Gas is poised to become the predominant fuel in the 21st century along with other renewable energy sources. Natural gas is the wave of the future in the U.S. with no other power source even close to matching natural gas’s potential over the next few decades. Listed below are some informative facts about Natural Gas.
- By definition, natural gas is a fossil fuel because it was created from the decay of organic materials. Unlike other fossil fuels, natural gas burns much cleaner when it is consumed. It emits about 50% of the carbon dioxide when it is consumed. That makes it more of a bridge fuel than a true fossil fuel, helping our societies move toward a cleaner fuel infrastructure without needing to completely change what we’ve already built up in our energy networks.
- Natural Gas is very cost-efficient and is an abundant source of energy. In the United States, 2013 survey results, when combined with consumption rates, showed that there was enough present to handle demands through at least 2100. Part of trying to reduce dependency on foreign oil means finding sources of alternative forms of energy here in America—and according to the FNGA, over 97% of the natural gas used domestically is produced here, in North America.
- With natural gas, you’ll never run out of fuel. Underground pipelines mean there is no disruption of supply due to storms or power outages. Unlike other heat sources that leave ashes and odors, natural gas will never leave a mess. And you’ll love the convenience natural gas adds to your home – from instant, cozy heat, to precision cooking, and nice, long showers without running out of hot water.
- In most areas, natural gas can cost drastically less than electricity to heat your home and the water you use. It can also be half as expensive as coal or oil for the same tasks. By heating your home with natural gas instead of non-gas sources, you could potentially save more than $5,700 on average over 15 years after making the switch.
- Natural gas is a growing industry and supports over 4 million jobs in America alone.
- Natural Gas is safer and easier to store when compared to other fossil fuels.
