There have long been arguments in favor of renewables development, such as wind and solar energy, to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. While renewable energy will replace fossile energy in the future, this infographic offers a new perspective on the harmony between renewables and natural gas, and how they complement each other to address both the energy needs in the country and the alarming global climate change. Several research laboratories, business associations and news agencies have agreed to recognize the importance of natural gas, the cleanest fossil energy, in providing low-carbon energy solutions as the “rapid backup” for those intermittent sources like solar and wind energy. Therefore, future investment in both natural gas and renewables are necessary to address the pressing energy needs in the future in the most effective way.
