Armstrong: Natural gas is powering clean energy economy

Staff Reports

Natural gas plays a significant role in the transition to lower emissions, said Williams President & CEO Alan Armstrong in a recent podcast with Betty Liu, Executive Vice President of the New York Stock Exchange.

“The energy industry is starting to come to the middle and say, we can reduce carbon emissions if we really put science to work and we put a master plan in place and start to work towards those.

“Natural gas and renewables working together is a very powerful solution, not just for the U.S., but for the globe,” he said. “The story here in the U.S. is very unique. We’ve reduced our carbon emissions by 17% over the last 13 years, and we’ve lowered the price people pay for natural gas at their home by 35% at the same time. There are very few countries that can say they both lowered people’s utility bills and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.”
