‘Prospects for the Development and Use of CNG/LNG in Transport’
The Czech Gas Association is hosting its eighth annual conference on CNG and LNG in transportation at the City Conference Center – Konferenční Centrum City – in Prague on February 18.
The goal of the conference, says the association, is to support natural gas use in transportation, support construction of CNG fueling infrastructure, market development of compressed natural gas and liquefied natural gas vehicles, and “to provide comfort for drivers and cheaper and eco-friendly traveling.”
The Czech Republic now has more than 7,800 NGVs out of a total national fleet of about 4.7 million vehicles. Most are passenger vehicles, says CGA, although association figures show some 518 natural gas buses in operation as well. The country has 75 public access CNG stations (in 2004, there were just nine), and 26 private stations at bus depots.
Thirty new public access CNG fueling outlets are planned.
As with previous CGA meetings in Prague, the theme is Prospects for the Development and Use of CNG/LNG in Transport.
