The FutureGas project has published a report about the development of compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) infrastructure and natural gas vehicles (NGVs).
The report is a state-of-the-art review on the development of natural gas vehicles and its fuel supply infrastructure. It was made by Dejene A. Hagos and Erik Ahlgren from Chalmers University of Technology. The report concludes that succesful implementation of NGV’s almost always goes hand in hand with favorable conditions to push the technology, such as tax breaks. Most NGV’s drive around in the Asian Pacific region, where 66% of the little over 23 million gas-driven vehicles are to be found, followed by Latin America (24%) and Europe (8,6%).
The report is of relevance for all other Work Packages in the Future Gas project, but it may also serve as a high-quality data source for anyone with an interest in gas for transport.
