UKLPG, the trade association for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), has launched an informative film to highlight the numerous benefits of LPG as a green gas solution for off-grid customers, strengthening its commitment to help the Government reduce carbon in homes and businesses across the UK without access to mains gas.
The film demonstrates how LPG can provide an immediate solution to help the Government reach its objectives within the Clean Growth Strategy on the need to significantly reduce carbon in rural Britain.
The two-minute film describes the benefits of LPG for homes and businesses alike. Thanks to the fuel’s versatility, it is a convenient solution for almost any industry, including agriculture, hospitality and leisure, and construction.
With more than two million off-grid premises across the UK, the film showcases a number of reasons why homes and businesses should switch to LPG. This clean, smoke-free fuel is ideal for cooking, provides reliable heat and warmth, and delivers instant hot water at a consistent temperature. With a well-established supply infrastructure throughout the UK, LPG is widely available, making it a convenient alternative to homeowners, business owners and managers who are looking to move away from high carbon coal and heating oil.
LPG acts the same as natural gas but produces 33% less CO2 than coal and 15% less CO2 than heating oil. With low particle emissions, low NOx (nitrogen oxide) emissions and low sulphur content, it is the lowest carbon conventional off-grid fuel.
The film also highlights how LPG is compatible for use with new and old buildings. Tanks can be buried underground to help the aesthetics of properties, and can even send alerts to suppliers for automatic refills, making it a versatile fuel for any site or property, anywhere in the UK.
UKLPG communications manager Lucy Cook said: “The Government’s Clean Growth Strategy gives a firm framework for our activities in fast-tracking the decarbonisation of off-grid Britain.
“As many homes and businesses in rural areas are looking to reduce their carbon footprint, switching from coal or heating oil to LPG can be a quick way to make a real impact on their energy efficiency. Our new film demonstrates the LPG industry’s determination to support the Government’s plans to reduce the prevalence and impact of carbon across the UK.”
