Proposed F-Gas Regulation: Implications on the Transition to SF6-free Equipment

Electricity demand in key global economies is expected to increase strongly over the next 20 years, as heavy and light industries, transportation, agriculture, and other sectors are increasingly electrified. The need to decarbonise electricity generation is well recognised, and the growth of renewable energy technologies will have a significant impact on it over the next two decades.

To effectively facilitate the transition, the transmission and distribution (T&D) system must be enhanced and expanded. At the same time, the system needs more equipment that can operate intelligently and with a lower carbon-emissions footprint. Sulfur hexafluoride—commonly known as SF6 used in switchgear—contradicts this goal as SF6 is harmful to the environment. Given the importance of electricity in our carbon-neutral future, minimising indirect CO2 emissions across the T&D network is imperative.
