NOTES

Chicken and Eggs: Opportunities & Strategies Building the NGV Infrastructure

The natural gas vehicle (NGV) market is the fastest growing amongst all the alternative fuels yet in many countries the ‘chicken and egg’ still persists: no fuel, no vehicles.

The purpose of this ‘Critical Issues Workshop’ is to identify, discuss and understand what can be done and is being accomplished to speed the development of the NGV fuelling infrastructure. The workshop will bring together a wide range of stakeholders from the natural gas vehicle industry sectors – fossil and renewable methane, compressed and liquefied — to discuss the challenges, successes, and strategies of establishing national and regional NGV fuelling networks.

NGV customers, compressor station entrepreneurs, CNG cylinder manufacturers as well as leading transportation and energy policy makers from the European Commission will provide the important dynamic element to the workshop to help understand what best practices, policies and conditions are best to foster the breaking of the chicken and egg syndrome for NGVs.

The outcome of the workshop will be a fuelling station strategy paper, based upon what is presented and discussed in the sessions, highlighting the strategic options that address the growth of the NGV  infrastructures, to help make it happen sooner than later.  The workshop results also will provide input to related NGV studies currently being done by the International Gas Union, the United Nations Working Party on Gas, and the European Business Congress.
