In a bid to reduce oil import bill and curb pollution from fossil fuel-based vehicles, the Indian government has pegged an investment of Rs 1.2 lakh crore to roll out city gas distribution network in almost 300 districts by 2030.
The expansion is planned for compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) dispensing stations. The aim is to increase the number of CNG stations to 15,000 from the current 1769 stations, which counted for 938 stations five years ago.
While electric vehicles are struggling to find proper charging infrastructure despite the government’s ambitious push, Natural Gas Vehicles have been in a better situation to have infrastructure which has grown rapidly.
As the largest concerned media house of the automotive industry, ETAuto.com brings Natural Gas Vehicle Conclave 2019 to throw light on natural gas vehicles and make NGVs a mainstream mode of transportation for private and commercial purposes, which will help the industry and the government to meet the carbon emission target promised under the Paris Agreement. The conclave will bring all the stakeholders together to discuss the key pain points, challenges and issues pertaining to NGVs.
