The 2017 AGA Playbook, released today, is an essential handbook about the role natural gas plays in American’s daily lives. The playbook offers a concise, fact-based narrative detailing how the industry and utilities are helping increase our energy security, improving our environment and boosting our economy.
Our sixth edition of the Playbook includes information about a new AGA report, titled the Uncovering the U.S. Commercial Sector, which highlights the fact that clean and affordable natural gas has led to $76 billion in savings for American businesses since 2009. In addition, households that use natural gas for heating, cooking and clothes drying are now saving an average of $874 per year compared to homes using electricity.
The 2017 AGA Playbook also contains pertinent information regarding pipeline safety, natural gas supply and usage, industry safety, energy efficiency, economic growth, cybersecurity and more. It details information on the latest natural gas utility initiatives to enhance cyber and physical security including the AGA Peer Review Program and the Downstream Natural Gas Information Sharing and Analysis Center.
