Transition Through Innovation - Natural gas as a fuel
As oil fuels will reduce their market share in the coming years, alternatives will be needed for road and maritime transportation. Natural gas will be key in the energy transition.
Sia Partners supported GRTgaz, the French natural gas TSO, in building the "Natural gas as a fuel" case study of the "Transition Through Innovation" report. This report was published by R20, Arnold Schwarzenegger's NGO, and presented in New Delhi on February 5th, 2015.
In the transportation sector, alternative fuels are sought in order to replace the dominant gasoline and diesel. An efficient and cost-effective solution is natural gas, in its gaseous (CNG) or liquefied (LNG) form.

By 2025, 115 million tons of CO2 could be avoided annually thanks to CNG, LNG and biomethane.
