The European Union’s (EU) TEN-T Programme will provide over €2 million towards funding a pilot deployment of CNG fuel stations in Sweden.
The aim of the project is to increase the number and density of CNG fuelling stations, encourage the use of CNG and create a market opportunity for both CNG and LNG investors.
The project will cover two new CNG fuelling stations in Härnösand and Umeå, as well as improve existing stations at Sundsvall and Skellefteå in northern Sweden.
Results will be used to develop best practice for new actors in the CNG market and support decision-making for other possible CNG fuel stations. The project will also provide solutions on how to accelerate market development of both CNG and LNG infrastructure along the roads in specific regions where the distance between urban centres and gas distribution grids is too long, or where such a grid does not exist.
The project is to be completed by December 2015.
