The U.S. Economy

Conventional and renewable propane drive U.S. jobs and economic growth.

As an industry, propane will see growth n the clean energy space with additional job opportunities thanks to the advent of renewable propane and other renewable liquid gases. This is a particularly strong opportunity in production and distribution as this critical transition picks up momentum.

Renewable propane will be a strong, emissions-saving complement to solar and wind power.

Renewable propane presents an opportunity for the creation of a network of producers throughout the country. In markets where grid reliability is a concern, in particular, renewable propane offers new opportunities for building off-grid solutions.

Some states have actively pursued expansion of renewable propane production and usage. For example, California, the largest consumer of renewable propane, has identified production capacity to displace 50% of its conventional propane consumption in the coming years. The goal is to have 100% renewable propane by 2030.
