Energy Inputs

We are reducing the carbon intensity of the fuels used to produce and transport goods.

What Is the Energy Inputs Initiative?

We are focused on Providing clean, reliable sources of energy for industrial activities by reducing the methane intensity of natural gas supplying high-heat power and increasing the uptake of biofuels and emerging fuels like hydrogen.

What We're Doing

We are:

  • Partnering with oil and gas companies, governments, and civil society to eliminate fugitive methane emissions from the natural gas value chain, aiming for an 80 percent reduction by 2050

  • Accelerating hydrogen market development through a combination of research and marketplace pilots

  • Pursuing opportunities for biofuel and biomass to achieve near-term decarbonization


Why It Matters

Natural gas is currently the primary fuel powering heavy industry. But natural gas has a problem: it leaks methane, a superpotent greenhouse gas (GHG) that has a short-term impact on climate over 80 times greater than an equivalent amount of CO2. Although we are working to displace the use of fossil fuels with electrification, increased uptake of biofuels, and future fuels like hydrogen, there are no near- or medium-term alternatives for many industrial applications.
