About 40% of the energy we currently consume in Italy comes from natural gas, which in environmental terms is the least impactful.
The energy transition, a major topic of our days and of the near future, is not as simple as it may seem and will take a few decades. The solution cannot involve the use of a single type of energy, but rather a range of sources that are integrated: wind, solar, hydrogen, biomethane, but also a part of fossil and in this area natural gas has the least impact in environmental terms.
But let's take a step back, analyzing the natural gas situation.
Where does gas come from?
Currently, fossil sources (including gas) supply about 80% of our global activities.
Italy is a country that uses a lot of natural gas, or 40% of all the energy we consume.
90% of the gas Italy consumes is imported from abroad, through "ports".
