Launch of the UfM Gas Platform working group (videoconference) on the role of gas for the transportation sector in the Mediterranean area

The Secretariat of the UfM Gas Platform is launching on 23 June 2020 through videoconference a working group dedicated to the role of gas for the transportation sector in the Mediterranean region. Gas as a fuel for the transportation sector has a long but uneven history. Leveraging on the success stories of methane for cars (CNG and NGV) and the opportunities offered nowadays by LNG as a fuel for the heavy road vehicle and ship markets, participants will examine a deeper use of natural gas in the sector. The working group will also analyse challenges, benefits and economic opportunities.
