Natural Gas

Natural gas is an abundant, clean low-carbon fossil fuel that can be readily utilised for the production of electricity. The high efficiency of the GE Jenbacher gas engine is well suited to the provision of reliable decentralised electricity utilising natural gas as a fuel.

Natural gas originates from plant and animal matter which decomposed millions of years ago and is now located in reservoirs under the Earth’s surface. Natural gas is primarily comprised of methane with other gases in smaller proportions.

The concentration of gases contributing to climate change is increased by human activities, particularly by the utilisation of fossil fuels in industrial processes and agriculture. The utilisation of natural gas in gas engines is characterised by the lowest carbon dioxide emission levels of all fossil fuels. Due to the fact natural gas is low in carbon, but has a high hydrogen content, natural gas has the most favourable carbon dioxide balance. The combustion of natural gas produces around 40-50% less carbon dioxide than when coal is burned to produce the same amount of energy. 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.

In countries where the national grid is unreliable and supplies of natural gas are abundant, gas engines provide an excellent source of reliable island mode power.
