April 13, 2021 - Gas power plant: Is electricity from natural gas sustainable?

Gas-fired power plants release greenhouse gases, but they still play a special role in the energy transition. You can read here what it is all about and how sustainable the method is.

Gas power plants are part of the electricity network in Germany. The existing plants mainly work with natural gas, which is one of the fossil fuels. As with coal or oil, climate-damaging greenhouse gases and CO2 emissions are produced. These cause the earth to warm up and thus accelerate climate change ...

Gas power plant

A gas power plant is a power plant that uses chemical energy from the combustion of a fuel gas as a primary energy source. Natural gas is by far the most frequently used, along with biogas, wood gas, coal gas, flue gases and other fuel gas. If the term gas power plant is used without further details, it is usually natural gas ...

Greenhouse gas emissions

Gas-fired power plants cause lower emissions in direct operation than coal-fired power plants. However, since natural gas consists largely of methane, which is a powerful greenhouse gas, natural gas losses during extraction and transport must also be included in the greenhouse balance of gas-fired power plants. Depending on the origin of the natural gas, the greenhouse balance varies, especially since there is still uncertainty in science about methane losses in the supply chains. In particular, there are major differences in research about gas losses in shale gas extraction, where hydraulic fracturing is usually used ...

greenwashing

Greenwash or greenwashing (green dyeing) is understood to mean when companies try to give themselves an environmentally friendly image with the help of public relations and PR campaigns. No wonder that nuclear companies, which have a bad reputation in Germany and other countries, also use this strategy.

LobbyControl published a study in 2007 in which it examined the goals and instruments of greenwashing. Companies usually aim to achieve greater acceptance for their business areas, to influence political decisions or to receive government support, for example for climate protection projects. LobbyControl differentiates between advertising campaigns, sustainability reports, environmentally friendly model projects and much more ...
