Tucker Perkins - Propane Education & Research

Episode Information

Potentially the most contentious interview that we’ve done to date we explore the role propane and natural gas plays in the transition to clean, renewable energy.

As the CEO of the Propane Education & Research Council  Tucker Perkins has decades of experience across the energy sector and helps to put natural gas into context across the energy needs of our modern world.

As we transition to renewable energy there is a segment of the energy mix where energy density is critical (think shipping and logistics) where solar, wind & storage battle to be viable so the critical question is what liquid fuels (that have the requisite energy density) and how are they created.

We explore the differences in what gas is burned which then impacts the level of either CO2 and other greenhouse gases such as methane released. Beyond how it’s used, how it is sourced is an even bigger lever. New approaches to liquid fuel creation, through the use of biofuels, provides the promise of CO2 free energy, that is accessible and affordable to bring the quality of life we are used to in the developed world in the developing world
