Environmentally and climate-friendly energy source
In Switzerland, natural gas is mainly used to generate heat in households and as process heat in industry. Today, three quarters of the Swiss population are connected to the more than 20,000 kilometre long transport and distribution network. Biogas, a renewable and CO2-neutral energy from natural waste materials, is becoming increasingly popular in Switzerland. More and more gas suppliers are adding a fixed proportion of biogas to natural gas. Switzerland also has over 13,000 vehicles in operation that run on natural gas and biogas in an environmentally and climate-friendly manner.
