Natural gas is a clean low-carbon fossil fuel that can be readily utilised for the production of electricity. The high efficiency of the Jenbacher gas engine is well suited to the provision of reliable decentralised electricity utilising natural gas as a fuel.
The utilisation of natural gas in gas engines is characterised by the lowest carbon dioxide emission levels of all fossil fuels. Notably it also has low emissions of sulphur dioxide (SO2), oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and particulate matter.
As a fuel, natural gas is set to become a significant source of power in the coming years. Natural gas is projected to become the most significant fossil energy medium in the next fifty years.
Natural gas generation relies upon a well-developed and stable natural gas supply.
