The Board of Directors of the Natural & bio Gas Vehicle Association (NGVA) Europe has announced the appointment of Matthias Maedge as Secretary General.
Mr Maedge previously served as Deputy Secretary General and EU Affairs Director of NGVA Europe. He said: “Gas in transport provides a quick and cost-effective way to meet key requirements of the EU, including decarbonising road transport and improving air quality in cities. Natural gas is an excellent fuel and a perfect partner for renewables offering multiple opportunities to contribute significantly to diversifying the energy mix in transport. NGVA Europe will stay committed to strengthening ties between EU policy makers, the NGV industry and vehicle operators.”
Mr Maedge succeeds Lennart Pilskog, who was Secretary General of NGVA Europe from 2014 to 2015 and sat on the board of NGVA Europe for a number of years representing Volvo.
Mr Maedge added: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lennart on behalf of the staff, the board and the members for his excellent service and dedication these past two years to NGVA Europe, highlighting the essential role that natural gas can play in transport.”
