The Contribution of Natural Gas Vehicles to Sustainable Transport


  • Michiel Nijboer

    (International Energy Agency)


The transport sector is currently responsible for 23% of energy-related CO2 emissions, and transport associated CO2 emissions will more than double by 2050. This working paper evaluates the potential costs and benefits of using natural gas as a vehicle fuel for road transportation, as well as the policy related to its market development.
