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.
