As a responsible business, we continue to investigate different ways to manage and reduce the impact of our network, business activities and operations on the environment.
Below, you’ll find a number of new ways we’ve developed to facilitate low-carbon outcomes.
Innovation: sulphur hexafluoride (SF6)
SF6 is an extremely effective electrical insulator and has significant advantages over alternative materials. However, SF6 is also a potent greenhouse gas, with a global warming potential (GWP) of 22,800 times stronger than CO2.
We’re exploring new initiatives and SF6 alternatives including: gas insulated lines, alternative gases and capture techniques. These are part of our continued efforts to take care of the environment for current and future generations.
