You may have seen the news and heard about the Governments ambitious plans for a Net Zero future. The newspapers have been filled with headlines about boilers being banned and that homes will need to move onto a low-emissions system.
LPG is the lowest carbon, conventional fuel for homes and businesses off the gas grid, bringing huge benefits, not just on carbon, but air quality, compared to traditional off-grid fuels oil and coal. We do, however recognise this does not go far enough in tackling climate change, which is why the LPG industry launched its ambition to transition to 100% renewables by 2040 back in 2019 in order to support the Government’s target for a Net Zero future by 2050.
Renewable DME (Renewable Dimethyl-Ether) is a safe, clean-burning, sustainable fuel that can support the transition of LPG to a cleaner, greener fuel.
rDME (Renewable DiMethyl-Ether) is a convenient and non-intrusive ‘drop-in’ solution to decarbonisation that is a perfect fit for holiday and home parks.
Drop-in: a blend of up to 20% can be used with existing infrastructure, such as your tanks, boilers, cylinders, hobs and ovens, in fact any LPG appliance, so no expensive upgrades need to be made in order to start using it.
Renewable: made from a wide range of sustainable feedstocks.
Low carbon: up to 85% Greenhouse Gas emission reduction compared to diesel or heating oil. rDME also significantly improves air quality.
As the industry transitions to cleaner fuels, the aim is to enable existing LPG users like yourselves to gradually begin using rDME alongside your existing supply during the 2020s and 2030s. There is no need to panic and no need to look, for example at electric with all the upheaval that would cause you.
The net zero future is still a long way off in fuel terms and as such, fuels such as rDME need to be part of transporting us to the ultimate net zero goal. We are embracing these changes and will ensure our Customers are informed and aware of each step in the transition. We assure you of our continued support and commitment on this road to a cleaner, greener future.
If you’re new to LPG, you will undoubtedly be looking for the same convenience for your new ‘off-grid’ home that you have enjoyed when living ‘on-grid’. Just like mains gas, LPG is the perfect solution for all your heating, cooking and hot water needs.
At JGas we don’t just deliver gas to your home, we can install a gas storage tank on your property as well. One of our sales engineers will visit your home to carry out a brief site survey and give you advice on the type of tank that’s best for you.
Switching from oil to LPG provides savings on costs as well as carbon. Additionally, you can forget about ordering and tank maintenance as we take care of that for you with automatic, top-up deliveries and tank maintenance covered.
