Fracking is delivering big emission reductions in the US and can do the same in Australia.
 
US energy-related carbon dioxide emissions continue to decline thanks to increasing use of cleaner-burning natural gas.
 
A report in October 2017 by the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) confirmed the growing switch from coal to gas-fired electricity was the biggest contributor to a 1.7% fall in US energy-related emissions in 2016.
 
The report found that while electricity generation grew by about 1% between 2005 and 2016, related carbon emissions fell by 24 %. More than 63% of that reduction is due to the shift to natural gas.
 
The US has embraced natural gas and is reaping the rewards – abundant energy and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
 
Gas development should be at the core of any climate change response.
 
Ambitious 50% renewables targets can only be achieved with gas-fired back-up.
 
Widespread use of renewables requires reliable baseload power to fall back on.
 
Natural gas can be quickly switched on and off to partner with intermittent wind and solar power. So gas has a key role in enabling the greater integration of renewables.
 
Many commentators fail to recognise that ambitious renewables targets require more use of natural gas.
 
The Climate Change Authority has suggested that Australia’s use of gas-fired generation will need to double or triple to meet the Federal Government’s 2030 target.
 
Gas‑fired electricity generation is the key technology that combines reliability and rapid ramp-up to complement intermittent renewable energy.
 
Using more natural gas in power generation and resource processing would allow Australia to meet its growing energy needs while also reducing emissions.
