Does Renewable Natural Gas Have the Potential To Address Natural Gas’ Greenhouse Gas Problems?
Natural gas is mostly composed of methane, which is a greenhouse gas that is 20 to 80 times as potent as carbon dioxide (CO2). This means natural gas emissions add to global warming and climate change. But renewable natural gas or RNG is carbon neutral or even carbon negative. Can RNG be a fuel source that actually reduces greenhouse gas emissions?
Hydrogen Gas Injection into the Natural Gas Grid Has Begun in the U.K.
With a national goal of being net-zero carbon by 2050, the U.K. must find a way of decarbonizing residential and industrial heating loads. One possibility is to utilize the current natural gas network to instead deliver green hydrogen or a mix of green hydrogen and natural gas. 
Are Natural Gas Bans the Next Energy Trend?
In city council chambers across the country, the move toward municipal “reach codes” that call for new housing to be built without installing natural gas is gaining ground. The country’s largest natural gas distribution utility is fighting the movement city by city in Southern California and hopes to persuade council members that an all-out ban on natural gas is not the answer to climate change. 
Can Europe Find a Role for Gas in a Net-Zero Carbon Energy System?
A European project called H21 North of England proposes a “deep decarbonization” of several energy sectors including space heating, transportation, and power generation. If it is successful and its cities can indeed convert their natural gas systems to hydrogen, the current gas infrastructure will be indispensable.
Gas Infrastructure Has Big Impacts on New England Energy Marketplace
It appears that failure to built infrastructure that expands import capacity of either electricity or natural gas leaves New England vulnerable to extreme price spikes and even reliability issues on high peak demand days. New England is hoping a combination of new technologies and end-use customer market participation can be a valid substitute for large infrastructure projects.
Mexico, Infrastructure in the Age of Restructuring
Four years ago Mexico announced major energy reforms, and its natural gas market is slowly adjusting to such changes. Here's an in-depth look at Mexico's continued efforts to revitalize its natural gas market and some of the infrastructure challenges it has faced along the way.
