Natural Gas

Lower emissions with natural gas cogeneration applications.

Natural gas, also known as pipeline gas, is a viable solution for a swift energy transition and minimizing the global carbon footprint. Natural gas power solutions can be an important part of this transition.

Natural gas fired power plants emit approximately 40% less CO2 than coal, 20% less than oil, and around 30% less than diesel. This makes natural gas a suitable dispatchable counterpart to the growing proportion of fluctuating non-dispatchable renewables in global power grids. You can deploy natural gas immediately to serve as a substitute and bridge towards a cleaner energy future. Natural gas emits 202g of CO2/kWh instead of more than the 400g of CO2/kWh that is emitted out of lignite*.

Natural gas engines are a key component of power generation plants dedicated to minimizing carbon footprints. These engines are known for their efficiency, reliability, and lower emissions compared to traditional fossil fuel engines.

INNIO has long-term proven expertise with more than 50% of the Jenbacher engines delivered globally running on natural gas. Learn more about our broad portfolio of applications which operate on natural gas below.

Benefits of natural gas power plants

  • Up to 90% total efficiency in cogeneration mode
  • Reduced emissions
  • Lower energy-related OPEX
  • Fuel availability
  • Reliability

Renewable natural gas power generation

In addition to natural gas from fossil sources, natural gas can be derived from renewables.  Also called biomethane, renewable natural gas (RNG) often comes from agricultural waste or landfills, where it is turned into an energy source (biogas). The biogas then is upgraded to a quality that resembles that of natural gas. Fully interchangeable with natural gas, it can be fed into the existing natural gas pipeline network. The advantage? RNG uses waste to keep CO2 from the atmosphere while helping to decarbonize the gas grid.

The use of RNG in our Jenbacher engines is just one of many sustainable energy solutions from INNIO, with engines capable of efficient operation on a variety of renewable energy sources.
