Gas in transport manifesto ⁠— policy recommendations

This gas in transport manifesto includes information about what gmobility is, why it is necessary, our vision and our 5 policy recommendations:

  1. Decarbonisation
    To introduce a methodology that accounts for the CO₂ emission savings from renewable gas to establish an equal footing among technologies when considering their overall climate impact.
  2. Gas fuelling infrastructure
    To speed up the implementation of the alternative fuels infrastructure Directive, maintaining a technology neutral approach. To maintain natural and renewable gas (in the form of CNG and LNG) as alternative fuel sources – in line with the EU’s decarbonisation goal.
  3. Energy taxation
    To apply a preferential taxation for gas as transport fuel linked to its contribution towards low emission mobility and supporting a faster market penetration.
  4. Integrating a growing rate of renewables in the market
    To recognise the potential of renewable gas in the gas market legislation, by creating the right conditions to underpin future production dedicated to the mobility sector.
  5. Emission standards evolution and air quality
    To consider the specificity of natural gas as a clean fuel when establishing future emissions standards.
