sf6 gas: The Truths and Myths of this Greenhouse Gas

insulating gas is damaging to the environment: TRUE. Along with CFCs, HCFCs, HFCs and PFCs, sf 6 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’s “dirty little secret”: FALSE. gaz sf6 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 gaz sf6 is used in wind turbines: TRUE. insulating gas 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 sf6 gas: PARTLY FALSE. Bodies including the European Union are known to be considering a ban on sf6 gas at low-to-medium voltage levels in the future.

IntroductionThe EU’s Decarbonization Targets and Energy SecurityAlternative Gas Routes Strengthen EU Energy SecurityLinks Between Decarbonization and Energy SecurityKey Factors For Clean Energy and Advanced TechnologiesConclusionThe European Union’s efforts to achieve a carbon-neutral economy present a unique and timely opportunity to strengthen European energy security. European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen recently proposed a “European Green Deal,”—Europe’s new growth strategy, which seeks to transform the European Union (EU) into a climate-neutral economy by 2050. This objective builds on the commitments made by the EU under the Paris Agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40 percent by 2030 compared to 1990. The European Commission plans to enshrine the 2050 climate neutrality objective into law in March 2020. The European Council endorsed the Green Deal objectives, despite opposition from Poland. The discussions are set to continue in June 2020. According to the objective of the “European Green Deal,” carbon emissions would have to be reduced by at least 50 percent by 2030 compared to 1990 levels.

Total EmissionsAgricultural SourcesEnergy SourcesIndustrial SourcesWaste Management SourcesU.S. nitrous oxide emissions in 2009 were 4 MMTCO2e (1.7 percent) below their 2008 total (Table 22). Sources of U.S. nitrous oxide emissions include agriculture, energy use, industrial processes, and waste management (Figure 22). The largest source is agriculture (73 percent), and the majority of agricultural emissions result from nitrogen fertilization of agricultural soils (87 percent of the agriculture total) and management of animal waste (13 percent). U.S. nitrous oxide emissions rose from 1990 to 1994, fell from 1994 to 2002, and returned to an upward trajectory from 2003 to 2007, largely as a result of increased use of synthetic fertilizers.
