17% renewable gas used by the mobility sector in Europe


The Natural & bio Gas Vehicle Association (NGVA) has today released extensive numbers about the current utilisation of biomethane in the road transport sector in Europe.

These numbers illustrate that renewable gas is already broadly available for consumers all across Europe. Today, sustainable production pathways based on circular economy are largely available, and renewable gas is distributed thanks to a constantly growing refuelling infrastructure.

In detail, out of todays 4,120 CNG and LNG fuelling stations, more than 25% are delivering biomethane to European consumers. This equals a 17% average of all gas used as transport fuel (2,4 bcm/23,4 TWh).

This translates in an impressive effect on the CO2 emissions footprint: compared with gasoline, the available 17% biomethane share boosts the CO2 emissions reduction from 20% (obtained with natural gas), up to almost 40%.
