• Decarbonisation

    As well as the various biodiversity projects that SGN Natural Gas is involved with, the company also believes that the network itself will ultimately play a vital role in decarbonisation by helping to remove millions of tonnes of CO2 from the west of Northern Ireland, where oil and solid fuel use remains prevalent. With a vision for a carbon net-zero environment by 2050, our innovative network is designed to ensure there is now a clear pathway to a fully decarbonised, cleaner fuel future for Northern Ireland that can deliver significant environmental benefits for the planet.

    Our world is changing rapidly. Climate change represents the single greatest challenge the planet has faced this century.

    More needs to be done to help save the planet from the effects of climate change. Thanks to the heightened awareness, society is becoming more alert to the impact of climate change on our planet and the necessity for further decarbonisation.

    Governments around the world have set ambitious targets to reduce the amount of carbon in the earth's atmosphere by 2050 and SGN Natural Gas is determined to play its role in realising  targets in Northern Ireland.

    Achieving net zero by 2050 will require a huge effort and a 'sea change' both in our behaviours and thinking. At SGN Natural Gas, we are encouraging more customers to move away from heating their homes with oil and coal, while at the same time, working diligently on ways to further decarbonise Northern Ireland's newest gas network for everyone's benefit.

    Importantly at SGN Natural Gas, we are working with our industry partners on the integration of zero carbon fuels such as biomethane into the network, which is expected in 2022.

    This is a huge milestone which highlights the key role our infrastructure will play, particularly in Northern Ireland where levels of biomethane are higher than in other parts of the world. Leveraging these considerations and becoming a world leader in new, green energy is a very real opportunity for our region and one that excites us as an innovative utility infrastructure company.

    While we continue this work, we at SGN Natural Gas invite discussion on how everyone can play their part in decarbonisation and encourage all to join the conversation.
