Grid switchgear uses Sulfr hexafluoride, the world’s most potent greenhouse

Nov 25, 2019 · 80% of all Sulfr hexafluoride is used in gas insulated switchgear, a vital component of the grid (isolating and protecting different sections), so it’s an energy sector issue. Nicholas Ottersbach at Nuventura (a cleantech startup developing ways to replace insulating gas) explains that alternatives exist, but need the help of robust regulations to accelerate further development and rapid take-up.
