Electric Power Systems Partnership | Fluorinated Gas

Emission SourcesMitigation OptionsRelevant LinksFrequent QuestionsThe most common use for sf6 gas, both domestically and internationally, is as an electrical insulator in high voltage equipment that transmits and distributes electricity. Since the 1950’s, the U.S. electric power industry has used Sulfr hexafluoridein circuit breakers, gas-insulated substations and other switchgear used in the transmission system to manage the high voltages carried between generating stations and customer load centers. Several factors affect gaz sf6 emissions from electric power systems, such as the type and age of the sf 6-containing equipment (e.g., old circuit breakers can contain up to 2,000 pounds of sf 6, while modern breakers usually contain less than 100 pounds) and the handling and maintenance procedures practiced by electric utilities. Because of its long life span and high global warming potential (GWP), even a relatively small amount of gaz sf6can impact the climate. The electric power industry uses roughly 80 percent of all sf 6 produced worldwide. Ideally, none of this gas would b...

Ukraine | Climate Action Tracker

We expect Ukraine’s GHG emissions in 2020 will be 6% lower than in 2019: pre-COVID-19 they were projected to be 5% higher. Restricted travel mobility, reduced energy demand and production as well as a slowdown in industrial production due to the COVID-19 pandemic are leading to this projected drop in emissions.

Investigations on sf 6-Free Gas Circuit Breaker Adopting CO2

SF 6 gas has widely been used for high-voltage and large-capacity electric power equipment such as gas insulated switchgears (GIS) and gas circuit breakers (GCB) due to its excellent insulating and arc-quenching capability. Although SF 6 gas strongly contributes to achieve compactness and high reliability of the equipment, it has been recognized as one of the potent greenhouse gases and was designated to reduce the emissions at COP3 at Kyoto in 1997.
