Creating our energy future

Why natural gas matters

Natural gas is one of the world’s cleanest and safest energy sources used to cook food and heat homes, hospitals, businesses and industry.

 

Natural Gas benefits to society

Check out this video to learn more about why natural gas – and why what we do here at TC Energy – matters so much.

Natural gas and the infrastructure that delivers it are deeply interwoven into our economy

  • For the millions of small businesses that drive our economy, such as a restaurant or dry cleaners, natural gas and the infrastructure that delivers it to their doorstep make what they do possible.
  • Our industry touches every other industry and our success is their success.
  • Our industry helps produce materials used to build things and modernize cities. Natural gas is directly used in the heating, drying and melting of the manufacturing process to make glass, concrete, steel, brick, ceramics, and tile.
  • Many things we touch throughout the day are powered or produced using natural gas. Natural gas and the liquids derived from it are intertwined in our everyday lives as the building blocks in the chemistry for manufacturing everything from plastics, pharmaceuticals and fabrics.

Reliable Natural Gas

  • At TC Energy we ensure the safe, reliable and efficient delivery of natural gas, day in and day out.
  • We create warm habitable spaces when it’s cold and cool habitable spaces when it’s hot.
  • We are a major component of the power behind the plug that makes everything turn on from appliances to smart devices in homes, traffic lights in cities and computers that run the world.
  • Not to mention, natural gas and its associated infrastructure complement renewables for those times when the wind is not blowing and the sun is not shining, which is a reminder that our future is one of natural gas and renewables, not natural gas or renewables.
  • Without natural gas and the affordable and reliable power it provides, the enhanced deployment of renewable resources may not have been possible.
