The future will be driven by gas Climate-friendly, versatile and highly compatible with renewables
Natural gas is one of the key primary fuels in the German energy mix. In the future, its importance for the energy security as well as achieving the climate goals will only increase. In comparison to other fuels, natural gas is cleaner and less carbon-intensive, making it significantly more climate-friendly. Specifically, when compared with coal and lignite, natural gas delivers a climate benefit of around 41-44% reduction in CO2 emissions.
Therefore, in view of the immense need for action required to meet the German and European climate and energy policy targets, gas, combined with renewable energies, offers the biggest potential for ensuring a sustainable energy supply and, at the same time, reducing carbon emissions.
Due to its versatility and ability to link different energy sectors, natural gas plays a key role in the fields of power generation, industry, mobility and heating. In combination with innovative technologies and existing infrastructure, natural gas is the ideal partner for renewable energies and enables a sustainable and efficient implementation of the energy transition.
