The discussion will be focused on:

Climate change is a defining challenge across the globe, and natural gas, natural gas utilities, and the delivery infrastructure are essential to meeting our nation’s greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals. Recently, AGA and ICF conducted the first comprehensive analysis exploring natural gas utility pathways to achieve net-zero emissions. The result: Net-Zero Emissions Opportunities for Gas Utilities.

The study presents a national-level approach that leverages the unique advantages of gas technologies and distribution infrastructure. It underscores the range of scenarios and technology opportunities available as the nation, regions, states and communities develop and implement ambitious emissions reductions plans.

This e-dialogues dove into how America’s natural gas industry will be essential to achieving a net-zero emissions future. Speakers focused on how they plan to achieve significant emissions reductions by accelerating the use of tools available today, including high-efficiency natural gas applications, renewable gases, methane reduction technologies, and enhanced energy efficiency initiatives.

Other questions asked included:

  • What are some challenges you have faced as you start your journey to decarbonization?
