What Makes Natural Gas The Ideal Companion For Diesel Engines?

What Makes Natural Gas The Ideal Companion For Diesel Engines
According to the India Energy Outlook 2021 report by the International Energy Agency (IEA), India is the third largest consumer of energy in the world and the third highest emitter of carbon dioxide by volume. Today, 89% of the country’s energy needs are met through fossil fuels, including coal, oil, and natural gas. 

What’s more, in a world plagued by climate-related disasters, the urgency to curtail global temperature rise through an energy transition cannot be overstated. Over 130 countries, including major players such as China and India, have pledged to achieve Net Zero emissions by 2050 or soon after. While China aims for 2060, India has set its target for 2070. However, India’s journey toward this ambitious goal poses considerable challenges. That’s because in a developing country like India, it is not easy to divert large resources in favour of non-fossil fuels abruptly, creating the need for a holistic approach to reduce emissions. 

This is where natural gas can play a crucial role in this energy transition.

Natural Gas: A Strategic Fuel for Energy Transition

Natural gas, recognized for its greener attributes compared to coal and other liquid fuels, plays a pivotal role in mitigating carbon emissions. It boasts several advantages over traditional fuels such as diesel, particularly in terms of environmental impact, versatility, and cost-effectiveness. In India, natural gas typically comprises up to 92% methane, the primary component responsible for its energy content and combustion properties. Additionally, it contains small percentages of other higher hydrocarbons, contributing to its overall composition and properties.

Natural gas finds applications across diverse sectors, including power generation, heating, cooking, transportation, and industrial applications, making it a strategic component in reducing India’s carbon footprint. Its adaptability to various uses underscores its versatility and makes it a preferred choice for a wide range of energy needs. Moreover, the combined deployment of renewables and gas-fired generators offers a rapid and cost-effective pathway to sustainable energy transition in the power sector. 

What’s more, the prevailing and forecasted demand-supply dynamics indicate that natural gas is poised to remain more cost-effective than diesel, both globally and particularly in India. This affordability makes it an attractive option for businesses and consumers alike, offering economic benefits without compromising on performance.

1. Clean and Environmentally Friendly

Promising lower emissions compared to diesel fuel, natural gas emits significantly less air pollutants, making it a cleaner and more environmentally friendly option. Its combustion produces fewer particulate matter, sulphur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides, contributing to improved air quality and reduced environmental harm. With numerous states across the country mandating the shift from diesel-only gensets to dual fuel gensets incorporating natural gas, it is undoubtedly a strategic choice.

2. Unique Properties of Natural Gas

Natural gas is colourless and odourless, enhancing its safety and usability in various applications. What’s more, being non-toxic, natural gas poses minimal health risks, ensuring a safe working environment for operators and users. That’s not all, in the event of a leak, natural gas, being lighter than air, rises and dissipates quickly, reducing the risk of accumulation and potential hazards.

4. Storage Flexibility

Natural gas, including liquefied natural gas (LNG), offers inherent storage flexibility, complementing the intermittent output from wind and solar sources. This flexibility ensures round-the-clock stability in the power grid while facilitating the increased deployment of renewable energy for electricity generation.

In conclusion, integrating natural gas into dual fuel systems unlocks a multitude of benefits, ranging from environmental sustainability and safety to operational efficiency and storage flexibility. Harnessing the clean-burning properties and unique characteristics of natural gas presents a compelling opportunity to drive energy transition and meet evolving energy needs in a sustainable manner.
