Gas for transport set to deliver 50% fuel cost savings

22nd June 2020
Leading industry trade body, the Gas Vehicle Network, GVN, today launches a short video showcasing the natural gas opportunity for road haulage, and highlighting that substantial fuel cost savings possible-up to £29,000 per year.
  • Save Haulage Fuel Costs With Renewable Gas

Isaac Occhipinti, Head of External Affairs, the Gas Vehicle Network said:

“There is so much information out there for fleet operators to trawl through, and the decarbonisation landscape can be overwhelming. We wanted a simple way to show the key benefits of gas as a transport fuel, a video answered this brief.”

The GVN video adds weight to biomethane as a fast track to decarbonise transport. Clean, low carbon, renewable gas powered vehicles are an obvious, sustainable solution for the freight and transport industry. GVN statistics show that in 2019 almost 80% of the total dispensed volume of gas for transport fuel was biomethane-a renewable and sustainable low carbon fuel - a 22% increase from 2018,”

“By switching from diesel to renewable biomethane gas, fleet operators could see savings of up to £29,000 per year, approximately 52%. In addition, with biomethane, net CO2 emissions could be cut by over 84%.”

 “It is becoming increasingly clear that gas as a transport fuel can, and will deliver substantial financial and carbon savings for fleet managers and Government as they adopt low carbon, renewable gas powered heavy vehicle transport.”
