LPG is a key part of Ireland's energy mix ensuring thousands of off-grid homes and businesses in Ireland have access to lower carbon gas.

Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is the lowest carbon conventional fuel source available to homes and businesses off the natural gas grid today.

LPG is a hydrocarbon gas that exists in a liquefied form. It is supplied in two main forms, butane (C₄H₁₀) or propane (C3H8) and comes in a tank or cylinder. This flexibility and portability allows LPG to reach places that other energies cannot.

Its combustion emits 33% less carbon-dioxide than coal and 11% less than heating oil. LPG also emits almost no black carbon, which scientists now believe is the second biggest contributor to climate change globally.

Hundreds of millions of people currently use LPG globally and depend on it for thousands of applications. LPG is currently used as a lower carbon energy alternative by domestic, business, agriculture, tourism, hospitality, industrial and transport sectors across Ireland today.

Benefits of LPG

  • Low carbon: Emits 33% less CO2 than coal and 11% less than oil.
  • Clean: LPG is a clean-burning, smoke-free fuel that supports cleaner air quality.
  • Versatile: LPG has more than 1,000 applications worldwide including domestic and commercial cooking, space and water heating, agricultural uses, industrial applications and outdoor recreation.
  • Efficient: LPG is highly efficient and responsive and supports optimised performance in the newest high efficiency condensing boilers
  • Secure: LPG has multiple supply sources, and because it is easily transportable, it provides security, flexibility and dependability as an off-grid fuel.
  • Bio-ready: As BioLPG is a ‘drop-in’ fuel, LPG infrastructure is ready for the future, meaning no additional equipment costs and low consumer disruption.
  • Technology compatible: LPG is compatible with most modern low carbon heating appliances such as gas heat pumps, hybrid installations and fuel-cell micro-CHPs.
