G is for Gas
At VNG, everything has revolved around gas for six decades. And for good reason. Gaseous energy sources are and will remain an essential part of the energy mix in the future. During the energy transition, we are now tapping the full potential of different gas types to protect the climate.
Importance of molecules
Molecules will play an important role in the required reduction in CO₂ emissions in the future. This is evident when looking at final energy consumption in Germany, where molecules account for around 2,000 TWh, just under 200 TWh of which are renewable – meaning that, in view of the remaining 1,800 TWh, there is considerable potential for decarbonisation as a result of transitioning from fossil natural gas to ‘green gases’.
Whether as a bridging technology or in a regenerative form, with our gas-related services we are driving decarbonisation and actively shaping change. By expanding our biogas portfolio and adding ‘green gases’, but also through innovative processes such as power-to-gas, we want to help reduce the energy system’s CO2 footprint step by step.
The goal is always to develop solutions for achieving climate protection goals – and to create a secure, environmentally friendly energy future. In order to realise this intention, molecular energy sources are of outstanding importance. They have considerable as yet unused decarbonisation potential, both in terms of total energy consumption and the non-renewable share. As part of our green gas strategy, we are systematically exploiting this potential by adding to conventional natural gas and replacing it with a new variety of renewable gases.
