Go With Natural Gas To Accelerate Transition to Lower Emission Vehicles Across Canada

Go With Natural Gas To Accelerate Transition to Lower Emission Vehicles Across 
OTTAWA, Oct. 15, 2012 /CNW/ - A new bilingual website will accelerate the 
transition to lower emission vehicles across Canada. Go With Natural Gas 
(www.gowithnaturalgas.ca) provides a central point of access for information 
on how switching to natural gas can lower emissions and reduce operating costs 
for truck and bus fleet owners. The website is a go-to resource for Canadian 
fleets interested in learning more about natural gas vehicles including the 
availability of factory-built trucks and buses, driving range, technology 
improvements, stations, emissions benefits,payback and fuel savings as well 
as learning about how natural gas compares to diesel in terms of energy use, 
properties, and safe handling. 
"There is considerable momentum for natural gas as a transportation fuel in 
North America," said Dr. Sam Shaw, Chair of the Canadian Natural Gas Vehicle 
Alliance (CNGVA) and Vice President - Natural Gas Policy Development at Encana 
Corporation. "The new Go With Natural Gas website can help Canadian fleet 
owners quickly get up-to-speed by learning about the benefits of switching to 
natural gas and through access to online calculators to determine fuel use, 
cost savings, and emissions benefits." 
The new website is the part of a broader education and outreach program that 
aims to build capacity for the transition to natural gas vehicles in Canada. 
Providing up-to-date information and closing information gaps are fundamental 
to increasing natural gas vehicle deployment, a goal of the joint 
industry-government initiative formed to implement the recommendations of the 
Natural Gas Use in the Canadian Transportation Sector - Deployment Roadmap. 
The website was made possible by a contribution from Natural Resources 
Canada's ecoENERGY for Alternative Fuels initiative. 
Natural gas trucks and buses are a proven and cost effective alternative that 
reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20-25% compared to heavy diesel vehicles, 
one of Canada's fastest-growing sources of greenhouse gas emissions.
