The technology is deployed through a trenchless installation method that cuts environmental disruptions. Among energy sources, Smartpipe can transport natural gas, hydrogen, and CO2 for carbon capture and storage – enabling a lower-carbon future. Learn more here.

Natural gas is crucial to reducing emissions and supporting economic growth. The US provides a great example. Last year, US greenhouse gas emissions dropped 2% year-over-year driven by the switch from coal to natural gas. Significantly, the emissions drop occurred at the same time US GDP increased by 2.6%. Read more about the vital role of natural gas in the energy transition.

Enbridge is all in on natural gas. Why? Because it is essential to an affordable, secure, and sustainable energy future. In the US electric power sector, the shift from coal to natural gas drove a 32% reduction in emissions between 2005 and 2019. And the infrastructure that delivers it today can also transport low-carbon energy sources like hydrogen and renewable natural gas tomorrow. Read more about the vital role of natural gas.

North American liquified natural gas, aka LNG, plays an important role in the global effort to reduce emissions and ensure energy security. It offers a much-needed solution to displace coal, which is growing in use and accounted for over 40% of carbon dioxide emissions growth in 2021. In the US electric power sector, the shift from coal to natural gas drove a 32% reduction in emissions between 2005 and 2019. This success can be replicated worldwide. Discover how Enbridge views LNG as a key component for a cleaner energy future.

Enbridge and FortisBC Energy, in partnership with the government of British Columbia, are launching a study to explore hydrogen as a low-carbon energy solution. It will assess transporting hydrogen safely and reliably through the province’s existing gas pipeline infrastructure, including Enbridge’s Westcoast natural gas pipeline system – the primary natural gas transmission system in BC. This important study will play a critical role in determining how existing energy infrastructure can be used to transport hydrogen and advance the energy transition. Read more.

North American natural gas offers a solution to shift away from coal and support renewables. It emits half the CO2 of coal and provides a reliable base load power for wind and solar. Exports of liquified natural gas, aka LNG, can slash global emissions and ensure energy reliability and affordability. In the US electric power sector, the shift from coal to natural gas drove a 32% reduction in emissions between 2005 and 2019. This success can be replicated globally. Discover how Enbridge, an energy delivery leader, views LNG as a key component for a cleaner energy future.
