In Canada’s energy future, natural gas will be an ideal choice to meet the energy needs in homes, businesses and institutions and more and more natural gas will partner with new technologies like solar and ground source energy.
A low-emission, inexpensive energy source for space and water heating, cooking and drying, natural gas is key to making energy efficient buildings a reality. Used in combination with solar and ground source energy, it provides reliable, affordable and clean energy to houses and buildings.
As well, new technologies – like ground source heat pumps and micro-combined heat and power – are allowing natural gas to become an efficient fuel for on-site electricity generation.
