Natural gas and renewables: The Dynamic Duo

Natural gas and renewables: The Dynamic Duo

Watch this video from Interstate Natural Gas Association of America: In the United States alone, there are over 52,000 operating utility-scale wind turbines and nearly 1.6 million solar installations. As abundant as they have become, it’s not always possible to install them and leave them alone to let them do their work, especially when you are dealing in large … Continue reading Natural gas and renewables: The Dynamic Duo

Restoring the pipeline right of way

Restoring the pipeline right of way

Installing pipeline infrastructure is a complex construction undertaking, requiring heavy equipment, sophisticated machinery and lots and lots of digging. However, not long after construction is complete, there’s actually very little evidence that a pipeline is underground. For example, just two years ago Williams installed an 11-mile pipeline lateral connecting its Transco natural gas pipeline to … Continue reading Restoring the pipeline right of way

NYC report shows how growing natural gas usage has helped clean city’s air

NYC report shows how growing natural gas usage has helped clean city’s air

According to a new report, the expanded use of natural gas combined with increases in energy efficiency has helped New York City’s largest buildings reduced carbon emissions by 14 percent and energy use by 10 percent between 2010 and 2015. The new report, “Greener, Greater Buildings Plan,” was issued by the mayor’s office, the Urban Green … Continue reading NYC report shows how growing natural gas usage has helped clean city’s air

U.S. emissions continue to fall, thanks to natural gas

U.S. emissions continue to fall, thanks to natural gas

New data released by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) attributes significant greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions to the growing switch to natural gas-fired electricity generation. According to the EIA, 63 percent of energy-related carbon emissions reduction in 2016 can be credited to the utilization of clearner-burning natural gas for electricity generation. Data from the EIA shows that … Continue reading U.S. emissions continue to fall, thanks to natural gas

Climate group says natural gas responsible for emissions decline

Climate group says natural gas responsible for emissions decline

A recent article in Forbes Magazine says that natural gas’ growing share of electricity production has been the single largest driver of declining U.S. carbon dioxide emissions. In fact,natural gas has reduced 50% more emissions since 2005 than wind and solar power combined. The article posted Sept. 12, titled, “Climate Group: Natural Gas, Not Renewables, Is Largest Factor In … Continue reading Climate group says natural gas responsible for emissions decline

Environmental stewardship: Saving slippery salamanders

Environmental stewardship: Saving slippery salamanders

Williams’ partnership with West Liberty University to save a vulnerable species of salamander reached a milestone recently with the release of 12 of the reclusive amphibians back into their native habitat. The Eastern Hellbender Salamanders were raised from eggs by WLU and finally at age 4 were big enough to release back to the watershed … Continue reading Environmental stewardship: Saving slippery salamanders

Solar eclipse offers a reminder of the importance of natural gas

Solar eclipse offers a reminder of the importance of natural gas

As we look forward to the upcoming solar eclipse on Monday, August 21, it’s an important reminder of the important role natural gas plays in making solar-powered electricity possible. The technology to store solar power when the sun isn’t shining doesn’t exist. Even a short loss of sunlight caused by an eclipse will create issues … Continue reading Solar eclipse offers a reminder of the importance of natural gas

Natural gas pipelines deliver environmental benefits

Natural gas pipelines deliver environmental benefits

Williams operates tens of thousands of miles of underground pipelines that deliver clean, abundant, affordable natural gas. As demand for energy increases, expanded use of natural gas can help improve air quality across the country, especially when used to replace more polluting energy sources. Compared with other primary energy sources, natural gas emits significantly fewer … Continue reading Natural gas pipelines deliver environmental benefits
