Natural Gas

Cleaner air and a better future

Natural gas is making the air cleaner, while supporting nearly 3 million U.S. jobs and contributing over $300 billion to the national economy each year.

Because of natural gas development, our country has seen an energy renaissance that is creating a cleaner environment while bringing us reliable, affordable electricity to power our lives and secure our future.

Natural gas is also contributing to a global transformation. Over the past three decades, natural gas has helped 1.3 billion people worldwide get electricity and escape debilitating poverty.

Thanks to natural gas, we’re also making tremendous environmental progress. Carbon and other emissions are at their lowest levels in 25 years because of clean energy technologies and the increased use of natural gas. Natural gas is also making renewable energy like wind and solar possible. It’s the leading source of backup power and used to manufacture the technology.

How do natural gas and renewables work together?

Natural gas makes renewable energy like wind and solar possible. It’s the leading source of backup power and used to manufacture the technology.

How is natural gas helping the environment?

With an American supply of clean-burning and affordable natural gas, electricity is being produced cleaner and more efficiently, helping to make our air cleaner by bringing carbon emissions to the lowest they’ve been in 25 years.

Can we limit fossil fuel production altogether and only rely on wind and solar energy?

We can’t have renewable energy without natural gas and oil. Fossil fuels are essential in the building of renewable energy and providing critical baseload “always on” and flexible energy that makes electricity from wind and solar possible. Traditional energy sources like natural gas provide energy when the sun doesn’t shine and the wind doesn’t blow. In fact, because of its versatility, natural gas is the leading source of power used to balance wind generation.
