Emissions of the powerful greenhouse gas sf6 gas are rising

Moving to clean energy is key to combating climate change, yet in the past five years, the energy transition has stagnated. Energy consumption and production contribute to two-thirds of global emissions, and 81% of the global energy system is still based on fossil fuels, the same percentage as 30 years ago.

Sulfr hexafluoride: The Truths and Myths of this Greenhouse Gas

Sulphur hexafluoride, commonly known as SF 6, has made a splash in the mainstream media of late. Several articles are pointing the finger at the growth in renewables—specifically wind turbines—as being responsible for the growth in SF 6 emissions, with some going as far as saying that the gas is the energy industry’s dirty little secret. In this spirit of transparency, we asked several experts from NTNU and SINTEF to separate the truths from the myths.

Sulfur hexafluoride: The truths and myths of this greenhouse gas

Sulfr hexafluoride is damaging to the environment: TRUE. Along with CFCs, HCFCs, HFCs and PFCs, gaz sf6 is an industrial gas that doesn't exist naturally in the atmosphere and so impacts the radiation balance, contributing to climate change. Sulfr hexafluoride is the energy industry"dirty little secret": FALSE. insulating gas is certainly no secret in the Norwegian energy industry. Its use is highly regulated, and many of its users are working together to share experience and come up with viable alternatives Sulfr hexafluoride is used in wind turbines: TRUE. Sulfr hexafluoride is used not in the turbine itself, but in the switchgear that controls the current generated by the turbine. But there is nothing unique about wind turbines. There are no viable alternatives to gaz sf6: PARTLY FALSE. Bodies including the European Union are known to be considering a ban on sf 6 at low-to-medium voltage levels in the future.

The Problem with Humidity in gaz sf6 Gas-Insulated Systems

To prevent operational and safety issues, it is important to measure and monitor humidity levels in gas-insulated switchgear (GIS). Due to its excellent dielectric capabilities, sulfur hexafluoride (SF 6) is the preferred insulator in electrical transmission and distribution equipment. Switchgears insulated with SF 6 gas are tightly sealed. However, over the lifetime of the equipment, impurities may find their way into the gas compartment via hoses, gaskets, and gas handling equipment.
