NGVA Europe Event

Renewable Gases for Road Transport: Fit for 55!

Join us on 28 October to discuss how to make best use of European technologies and innovations to decarbonise our mobility.

New gmobility study

Our new study analyses and compares CO2 emissions, the economic costs, and the resulting emission abatement costs of key road transport vehicles, while also illustrating the potential contribution of gas mobility alongside other technologies.

Why renewable gas is a key solution for the EU decarbonization roadmap

With bioCNG, bioLNG and biomethane reduction of GHG emissions could be up to 55% by 2030 across Europe, says Dr Jens Andersen, new Secretary General of NGVA Europe. „It's why we need to accelerate the impact of the use of natural and renewable gas now."

Report of Activities 2020

This 24-page report guides you through our various 2020 activities. Within 12 chapters, it delivers a general overview, information and insights into NGVA Europe.

What are the benefits of using BioLNG in transport?

All answers in our joint paper ‘BioLNG in Transport: Making Climate Neutrality a Reality’, which demonstrates the concrete benefits of using BioLNG to decarbonise hard to abate transport sectors through provision of the latest facts and figures.

The (necessary) rise of LNG

LNG is an acronym that serves as shorthand for Liquified Natural Gas. Today, it is the future proof transport fuel for which vehicles and infrastructure are already largely available, affordable, and most importantly, have the lowest emissions.

In the Fast Lane with Biomethane in Transport

With gas in transport, we can achieve the goal of the European Green Deal in a very reliable and cost-effective way already today.

Biomethane in transport

An easy answer to the complex equation of transport decarbonization.

Today, biomethane production is a reality, and already 17% of all gas consumed by the road transport sector in Europe is composed with it.

Renewable gas to foster transport decarbonisation

With the EU Green Deal in place, the role of natural and renewable gases for transport decarbonisation must be recognized. Gas in transport is ready to complement a set of solutions that will gradually change our way to move and to transport freights around the world.

CO2 emissions and carbon neutrality

Decarbonization is a major concern for the transport sector as, despite the continuous progress in improving vehicle efficiency, energy demand from the sector is growing. This article is touching upon the right CO2 measurement instrument and fuels to get the job done.

Driving a natural gas-fuelled vehicle reduces CO2 emissions and improves air quality

Natural gas as a transport fuel offers important benefits to consumers, the environment and to the economy as a whole.

Gas as a transport fuel

Natural gas is a fundamental player in a low-carbon future: clean combustion, low carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions (even carbon-neutral when renewable gas applies), technology maturity, availability and competitive fuel cost are key factors to boost the role of natural gas. Through compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG), a complete range of applications can be supported, from small city cars up to long-haulage trucks, as well as in the maritime sector.

What NGVA Europe stands for

NGVA Europe strives to encourage EU decision-makers to create fair regulations and accurate standards on issues pertinent to the developments of gas in transport. Using gas in transport contributes to improving air quality and achieving decarbonisation. Gas can also be renewable, accelerating transport decarbonisation with clean, carbon-neutral mobility.

Reducing CO2 emissions significantly

Natural gas blended with biomethane or synthetic gas (power-to-gas) from renewable sources can reduce CO2 emissions significantly, up to 95%.

Biomethane and synthetic gas (from the gasification and power-to-gas processes) are renewable energy sources with very low carbon footprints; when applied as fuels, they allow gas vehicles to run carbon-neutral.

With an average share of currently 17 percent in Europe, vehicles that run on biomethane are already better in terms of its CO2 emissions than any comparable vehicle that runs on petrol or diesel.
Dr Jens Andersen
Secretary General of NGVA Europe
Using biomethane as bioCNG, bioLNG in transport, even negative GHG emissions are possible. This is why we need to enable and accelerate the use of natural and renewable gas today.
