The European energy industry fully supports the EU’s ambition to phase-out of so-called “F-gases”, including sulfur hexafluoride or SF6. But the phase out of SF6 must be done in a gradual and realistic manner.

Energy sector to EU Parliament: SF6 phase-out is welcome but mustn’t jeopardise the energy transition

On Wednesday the European Parliament will discuss the phase-out of fluorinated gases, so-called “F-gases”. These F-gases all contain fluorine and are potent greenhouse gases.

Among the so-called “F-gases” is sulfur hexafluoride (short: SF6), a gas commonly used in electrical switchgear due to its chemical properties as an insulator. Switchgear ensures the safety and reliability of the European electricity grid. They play a similar role to the fuses used for the electrical installation of a house but at a much greater and more critical scale. In a joint letter, the European energy sector welcomes the phase-out of SF6, but also warns that an inadequate phase-out will jeopardise Europe’s energy transition.  In April 2022, the... ...
