Six natural gas fleet workshops will be held across Canada this month, with a focus on medium- and heavy-duty factory-built natural gas vehicles.
The half-day workshops are supported by Natural Resources Canada's ecoENERGY for Alternative Fuels program. These workshops aim to give fleets essential information on operating compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG) vehicles including project implementation information as well as details regarding economic and environmental benefits.
Switch to natural gas
Chair of the Canadian Natural Gas Vehicle Alliance, Douglas Stout, commented: "Natural gas for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles is one of the biggest made-in-Canada environmental stories of the decade. Canadian innovation created the engines that can replace diesel with natural gas, and this technology is being used to transform the heavy vehicle transportation sector in North America. Switching to natural gas is a strategy that all fleet owners should be considering."
Using natural gas as vehicle fuel can make transportation companies more competitive and help municipal fleets become greener and cleaner. Heavy vehicles are one of Canada's fastest growing sources of greenhouse gas emissions. Natural gas vehicles reduce emissions by up to 20% compared to diesel vehicles.
