Natural gas a future energy key role player

Owing to a combination of legal and policy restraints, as well as vociferous environmental objections, it is becoming increasingly difficult to gain approval from both federal and state bodies for new gas pipeline construction. For example, California, Washington and New England have proactive energy and environmental policies to encourage renewables, energy efficiency and energy storage, all at the expense of fossil fuels including natural gas generation.
