The Transition to Clean Cooking: How to Replace Gas?

While gas has long been considered a clean cooking fuel, research shows that it can impact health. This, paired with the high gas prices, the global net-zero journey is making countries around the world look for alternatives. Induction and electric stoves can be the solution. And the renewable energy transition is starting to prove it.

Cooking With Gas – The Full Story

Natural gas is the most popular cooking fuel worldwide, particularly in developed countries. Natural gas use rates will likely increase over the next several decades as more supporting infrastructure becomes available. However, the combustion of natural gas leads to several harmful greenhouse gases, which have direct health and environmental effects.

Using Gas for Cooking in Asia: History, Drawbacks And Future

In the search for cheaper and cleaner cooking alternatives, countries across the world are replacing gas stoves with induction and electric appliances. While low and middle-income countries in Asia might find this shift challenging at first, the path forward is clear – dirty and expensive fuels will make way for cleaner and cheaper alternatives.

High LNG Prices in Asia: Risk Causing Permanent Demand Drop

The demand for LNG in Asia is plummeting. Developing nations can't bear with the high gas prices and are actively looking toward renewables. Even fossil fuel stewards are starting to have second thoughts. And if the high gas prices continue, which seems likely, the demand drop might be irreversible.

Steel Producers Are Slow To Reduce Emissions

Steel plays an integral role in our modern world, yet it is also known for its high rate of emissions. One way to curtail these emissions is by implementing electric arc furnaces in production. While some countries have adopted this technology, others continue to develop facilities reliant on heavy-emitting technologies. Experts believe the steel industry is falling behind and may hinder the world from reaching net-zero by 2050.
