How Compressed Natural Gas Installation Works
Benefits of CNG:
- Alternative – increases security of energy supply in a geo-politically sensitive oil market
- Renewable – it is a pathway to the use of renewable biomethane gas as a transport fuel
- NGVs experience less vibration and are quieter than equivalent diesel vehicles
- NGVrefuellingtimesareequivalenttothatof other fuels such as diesel and petrol
- CNG has been identified as a key contributor to making Ireland a carbon-neutral country
- Natural gas is always available and never has to be stored or ordered
- Natural gas remains competitively priced compared to other fluctuating fuel prices
Changing your transport fuel choice to Compressed Natural Gas
The use of natural gas instead of more polluting fuels like diesel and petrol will result in considerably lower emissions of climate changing greenhouse gases.
The fuel cost savings of CNG compared to other fuels range from 17% to 35% making it an extremely attractive alternative fuel source.
CNG is a proven technology that has been in existence for decades. Worldwide there are 19 million vehicles in use with strong growth in Europe.
What is Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)?
CNG is a global alternative to diesel or petrol as a transport fuel.
It has similar refuelling and operational characteristics to diesel, providing fast filling and similar travel ranges. It is used as a transport fuel in Natural Gas Vehicles (NGV) and is a proven, reliable technology used in over 19 million vehicles worldwide and 1.9 million vehicles in the developing European market. Natural gas is the same efficient and affordable fuel that is used to generate our electricity, heat our homes and cook our food; it is simply compressed to fit in the fuel tank of a natural gas vehicle.
