The Energy in Your Home Over 24 Hours
Energy is sometimes a tough one to wrap your head around. This graph from the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) shows exactly how energy works in your home throughout a 24-hour period.
The graph, released as part of the AEMO’s Energy Dynamics Report, shows the role rooftop and grid solar plays, peaking between 12 and 2pm. As energy from solar begins to decrease, natural gas ramps up quickly to bridge the energy gap.
Because natural gas is flexible, it’s able to support the increased use of renewable energy, stepping in when sun isn’t shining or the wind isn’t blowing. More than that, natural gas is a lower emissions fuel, helping us move toward a cleaner energy future.
The energy provided by natural gas isn’t just electricity. It can be used for heating, cooking and hot water.
Experts agree that natural gas will continue to play an important role in working with renewables into the future in our cities and homes.
