Gas – The way forward for heavy goods vehicles

It is clear that the UK needs to find ways now to meet UK and EU commitments to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve air quality. The 2008 Climate Change Act com-mits the UK to reducing emissions by at least 80 percent below 1990 baselines by 2050, with an interim target to reduce GHG emissions by at least 34 percent compared to the 1990 baseline by 2020. Whilst natural gas is not a renewable energy source, it offers significant benefits as an alternative to diesel, and the NGV Network believes it has a key part to play in a multiple fuel Transport Strategy.
