  • Grid switchgear uses SF6, the world’s most potent

    Nov 25, 2019Sulphur Hexafluoride (SF6) is described as the world’s worst greenhouse gas. It’s 23,500 times more potent than CO2.Global annual emissions are 8,100 tonnes, equivalent to the CO2 emissions of 100m cars.It has an atmospheric lifetime of over 1,000 years and its installed base is expected to grow by 75% by 2030.

    Another option are certain fluorinated gas mixtures that also have less greenhouse gas potential than SF 6. For example, the Zurich-based energy supplier EWZ has been using such a solution since 2015, and in 2019 a 380 kV plant was erected in Bavaria, Germany. However, these gas mixtures lose their effectiveness at very low temperatures.
