Texas state Sen. Carlos Uresti (D-San Antonio) has filed a bill (SB 12) intended to encourage state agencies to convert their vehicle fleets to run on alternative fuels, preferably natural gas.
As part of the implementation of its 2006 Climate Change law (AB 32), California is considering major changes in the state’s low carbon fuel standards (LCFS) that could set back the growing natural gas vehicle (NGV) market. All the major NGV players have weighed in on the issue at the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
Some of the latest developments in the natural gas vehicle (NGV) industry are blurring international borders and energy sectors, giving further proof to the notion that gas use in transportation is becoming global in scope.
Even though its hydrogen/electric dole garnered most of the headlines (see Daily GPI, July 23), the California Energy Commission (CEC) also with less fanfare awarded $4.3 million for natural gas vehicle (NGV) expansion in the form of state funded rebates and other incentives for fleets and individual drivers to switch to NGVs.
Because of its high fuel use and average miles driven, the fleet sector using medium- and heavy-duty vehicles provides a global market plum waiting to be picked by the alternative fuel vehicle providers, including natural gas vehicles (NGV), according to a report from Navigant Research.
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) said on Tuesday it is making $3.6 million in grants available to help nurture 12 additional fueling stations for compressed natural gas (CNG). Grant proposals are due by July 9.
In Texas up to $7.7 million in financial incentives is being made available toward the purchase or lease of new natural gas vehicles (NGV) powered by compressed natural gas (CNG) or propane, and electric vehicles, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) announced.
The Colorado Energy Office, which has a goal of diversifying the state’s energy use for transportation, is preparing to issue a request for applications (RFA) for partial funding of compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations that are co-located with electric vehicle (EV) charging sites and/or propane fueling locations.
