Natural Gas Fuels Innovation At Home

The application of natural gas for domestic use has undergone dramatic changes and continues to be a major area of innovation.

Natural gas improves the lives of many, be it at the stove top or fueling domestic heating and hot-water installations. The global drive to increase energy efficiency and reduce emission also spurs innovation for natural-gas-fueled household installations, from hot water and heating systems to residential cogeneration systems.

Natural Gas in the modern home offers safer, more efficient and safer options than ever before.

Tokyo Gas has been one of the companies driving innovation forward, introducing in 2009 the first ever commercialization of a residential fuel cell cogeneration system (CGS), ENE-FARM. And in April 2013, the company released a new model that further reduces costs and the space required for installation. ENE-FARM is an energy system which utilizes a Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cell (PEFC), highly efficient in extracting hot water and electricity from city gas, and offers high energy-efficiency and less CO2 emissions.

In the U.S. consumers who use natural gas for heating, water heating, cooking and clothes drying spend an average of $654 less annually than consumers using electricity for the same appliances.
