The shift toward natural gas will carry tremendous benefits for consumers and the environment. Natural gas is affordable, reliable, efficient and available. It is also the least carbon-intensive of the major energy sources, emitting up to 60 per cent less CO2 emissions than coal when used for electricity generation.

Key benefits of natural gas

Secure, reliable, competitive and sustainable, natural gas is the sensible choice to reach Europe's energy goals today.

Natural gas technology

Breakthrough technologies have helped keep pace with rising global energy demand by making more energy supplies available.

Unconventional gas

While the potential of unconventional gas has been known for centuries, it was only towards the end of the 20th century that the combination of two existing technologies - horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing - made extracting unconventional resources an economically viable option.
