Director of State and Consumer Programs
Gas Technology Institute (GTI)
Natural gas is delivered to over 68 million homes and 5.6 million commercial and industrial customers across the United States providing clean, low-cost and reliable energy. Today, natural gas is far and away the low-cost option for space and water heating as well as industrial processes including glass, steel and aluminum manufacturing as well as a variety of heat treating applications. Almost all natural gas used in the United States is produced domestically and the outlook is positive for many decades of supply. Learn how natural gas technologies continue to be developed and improved to increase efficiency and reduce emissions for residential, commercial and industrial energy consumers and how natural gas will be part of a diverse energy future that includes expanded roles for energy efficiency and renewables.
