The fact that natural gas is a domestic resource, that it is reasonably priced, that it burns cleaner than coal, and that it can be used as a backup power source for intermittent renewable energy sources like wind and solar are all advantages of using it as a source of electricity.
The fact that natural gas is a fossil fuel and that burning it produces greenhouse gases, which contribute to climate change, is a disadvantage of using it as a source of energy. Fracking can also have an adverse effect on the environment by contaminating the groundwater and polluting the air. There is also the possibility of leakage from storage tanks, pipes, and other infrastructure, which can result in risks to public safety and environmental harm.
By providing technical and economic analysis of the use of natural gas as a source of electricity, Natural Gas Expert Consulting can assist businesses in navigating these trade-offs and help discover ways to optimize natural gas utilization and reduce emissions.
