Electricity Transmission and Distribution Greenhouse Gas

Sulfur hexafluoride is a commonly used insulator in electricity transmission and distribution equipment. Because of its high global warming potential (GWP), CARB adopted the Regulation for Reducing Sulfur Hexafluoride Emissions from Gas Insulated Switchgear in 2010. As new technologies using lower or zero GWP insulators emerge, CARB staff are proposing to amend the current regulation to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to increase flexibility in complying with the standards.

What Is Sulfr hexafluoride? and How Is It used?Is Sulfr hexafluoride A Danger to Human Health?How Environmentally Damaging Is It?Has The Environmental Impact Even Been Underestimated?Is The Mitigation of sf 6 Emissions Difficult? Do Better Solutions Exist?Conclusioninsulating gas is a long-lived, highly potent greenhouse gas. It is manmade and combines excellent electrical properties with chemical stability and low toxicity. Moreover, It’s non-flammable and low in cost. These characteristics have led to its widespread and enthusiastic adoption by the electrical industry, which uses approximately 80% of all insulating gasproduced (Powell, 2002: 6). Within the electrical industry gaz sf6is used as an insulating medium for medium (MV) and high (HV) voltage electrical switchgear. A switchgear is the combination of electrical disconnect switches, fuses or circuit breakers used to control, protect and isolate sections of electrical grids. Low-voltage (LV) switchgear are used for controlling electrical circuits within buildings, medium voltage (MV) switchgear for controlling the electrical grids within cities and towns, and high voltage (HV) switchgear for grids that span a greater geographical area such as countries and regions.

Category: Greenhouse gases. Sulphur hexafluoride (SF 6) is a greenhouse gas and has a very high radiative forcing effect and a GWP of 22,800 compared with a figure of 1 for carbon dioxide. Emissions occur due to its use in a small number of applications. Annual emissions have decreased by 58% since 1995. The largest source is related to the use of SF 6 for electrical insulation (47% of the total in 2018).
