Delivering on a Low Carbon Future
We are committed to supporting the District of Columbia’s efforts to create a low carbon energy future with our Climate Business Plan. Thousands of District residents and businesses depend on us to power their lives, and everyone deserves to live in a low carbon future. We all must do our part to build a cleaner future.
Randall L. Crawford
AltaGas President & CEO
The Climate Business Plan builds on our record of achievement and our companies’ collective determination to address climate change.
How We’ll Get There – Together
We spent the past year developing a comprehensive plan that will drive down GHG emissions related to natural gas by 50 percent in 2032 and 100 percent by 2050.
Maximize Energy Efficiency
We have already run successful programs to improve efficiency for our customers. We will build on those efforts, continuing to empower customers to use energy more efficiently, and deploying new technologies like super-efficient appliances.
We will invest in a more efficient infrastructure and expand our capability to meet the needs of a growing city. Through programs like PROJECTpipes, Washington Gas continues to modernize our infrastructure. Our investments help us maintain a modern, safe and reliable energy delivery system.
Harness New and Emerging Fuel Sources
We will use our existing infrastructure to deliver gas – and introduce carbon free fuels such as renewable natural gas and hydrogen – to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This includes clean-certified gas and promising renewable fuels like biogas and hydrogen energy. We will leverage new and emerging technologies based on the best science and engineering available.
The Climate Business Plan is good for the environment, for District residents and visitors, and it puts in place a framework for smart growth in the region.
