Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) Will Supply the World with Natural Gas Well into the Future

Although the world continues to transition to a future of low fossil fuels and low carbon energy, it appears that LNG will be a part of the energy mix for many years. Continued efforts to decarbonize LNG as much as possible will be important for LNG to be a beneficial part of the energy transition.

China’s Energy Transition is Critical to the World’s Future

Despite a current trend toward protectionism in the U.S. and Europe, consulting firm DNV believes China will continue to be the world leader in manufacturing of green technology and EVs. This analysis by DNV makes it clear that if we want to understand where the world energy transition is going, we must keep our eyes on China.

Natural Gas Regulators Are a Critical Safety Device: Here’s How They Work

Over the last 10 years, gas distribution and transmission systems have caused incidents resulting in an average of 11 fatalities and 48 injuries per year. Gas operators strive to continually drive these numbers to zero. A key device in preventing accidents is the gas regulator, which is found throughout the system from the wellhead to the customer meter.

Will EVs Overwhelm Our Distribution Grid?

Electric Vehicles or EVs in the U.S. will more than triple in the next two years and will increase more than tenfold to 39.6 million vehicles by 2030. Given that each EV has an electric charging load of about 7 kW (compared to a typical house with a peak demand of 4 kW), the projections raise the question – can our grid manage this rapid load growth?
