Natural gas is the greenest and most efficient fossil fuel and is an indispensable energy source for a sustainable energy mix. It is a flexible energy source, suitable for several purposes. Thanks to its features, it can be integrated with renewable sources to efficiently reduce emissionis.
Moreover, natural gas has several benefits:
- already existing and efficient transmission, distribution and storage infrastructures, ensuring a flexible, programmable and economical energy system;
- significant availability of large gas reserves next to Europe and further supply throught the global LNG market;
- development of biomethane, exploiting the existing gas network and generating positive effects on the agri-food sector, thus promoting an economic model based on sustainability and circularity in the use of resources;
- immediate utilization thanks to technologies that enhance the Italian industrial value chain and contribute to country decarbonisation as a transport fuel for light (CNG) and heavy (LNG) vehicles.
It is a flexible energy source, suitable for several purposes.
It could replace other fossil fuels allowing more sustainable land and sea transport, as well as boost the Italian agri-food supply chain.
