LPG is accessible everywhere
Unfortunately, more than 40 million European households in rural areas are not connected to gas grids and consumers often have to rely on high polluting energy. Fortunately, the number of government initiatives taken to educate the rural population to replace LPG with traditional cooking fuels, is growing.
Regardless of where you are, LPG can play its part! This is what we claimed in the video we prepared to celebrate the LPG day. What Cavagna Group highlighted on June 7th was precisely the remarkable accessibility of this energy source. Speaking from every part of the world, the employees of Cavagna Group attested that LPG benefits remain aligned worldwide, regardless of country.
That’s possible because it’s not only on the grid where LPG can make a difference. LPG is a game changer in energy transition plans, as it’s a sustainable energy source, retrievable in both cities and rural areas, in developed and developing countries.
In fact, alongside that, LPG is easy to use and safe to transport, even in the outermost regions. As it doesn’t need pipelines to be delivered, it’s usually transported via sea, rail or road, safely stored in containers, bulk tanks or refillable cylinders. These containers leave no unpleasant odour and the product does not lose its quality, even when stored for a long time.
The way it’s delivered and stored also makes it less exposed to natural disasters, thus ensuring security of supply. That’s significant in particular for rural areas and remote communities where LPG is not a choice, but the only feasible option. Here, LPG is the primary power source for different kinds of activities. In some cases, LPG is a bridge fuel on the way to natural gas, in others it is the perfect long-term solution. In any case, LPG could be the key for a cleaner and a more sustainable future.
