13 Facts you might not know about LPG Gas
With months of unstable electricity LPG Gas has become a popular alternative to energy supply.
Yet some people still feel a bit hesitant about switching over to LPG gas.
Here are the facts you might not have known about LPG gas :
- LPG emits 20 % less Co2 than heating oil and 50% less than coal.
- LPG helps to reduce emissions of a typical house by 1.5 tonnes (around 25%) of co2 per year
- As a low carbon, low polluting fossil fuel, LPG is recognised by governments around the world for the contribution it can make towards improved indoor and outdoor air quality and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
- LPG produces lower greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional energy supplies in every application it is used, from stationary applications such as water heating, space heating, cooking and industrial boilers to transportation applications.
- Studies consistently demonstrate that LPG generates fewer carbon emissions than gasoline (petrol) and broadly equivalent emissions to diesel.
- LPG was found to have higher efficiency than natural gas fuelled distributed power generation which makes it ideal for rural homes and businesses.
- As a cost-effective energy source, LPG can be up to five times more efficient than traditional fuels, resulting in less energy wastage and better use of our planet’s resources.
- LPG is an energy-rich fuel source with a higher calorific value per unit than other commonly used fuels, including coal, natural gas, diesel, petrol, fuel oils, and biomass derived alcohols. This fact means that an LPG flame burns hotter, an advantage that can translate into higher efficiency.
- LPG is extremely versatile and portable. It can be transported using sea, rail or road transport. LPG is available in a wide variety of packaging and storage options ranging from refillable cylinders to underground tanks.
- It is also a fuel that is available in even the remotest of areas, improving the lives of millions of citizens worldwide and providing a further impetus to regional development.
- As LPG originates from many different parts of the world and has a flexible supply chain, it drastically reduces dependency only on one source.
- LPG does not need a huge infrastructure of pipelines to support it. Often, it is the only fuel to reach islands or high altitude communities and, in times of emergency or national disaster, it can be crucial to survival.
- As one of the cleanest conventional fuels available, LPG complements renewable energy sources and technologies which depend on the weather or daylight.
With so many benefits of LPG gas is a definite consideration for the future.
