The NGV Network is expecting over 200 industry professionals to attend its first conference and exhibition on 25th June at the Motor Heritage Centre in Gaydon. NGV Day 2014 Conference and Exhibition, organised by Energy & Utility Skills, will focus on the experiences and lessons learnt by those involved in current natural gas truck and bus projects.
Conference speakers include officials from the Department of Transport who will describe progress in the £11 million TSB funded trials and show how trucks and buses appears to be the sectors suited to gas.
A wide range of Natural Gas trucks and buses are now available in the UK and there will be exhibition stands from key stakeholders including vehicle manufacturers, LNG suppliers, gas grid owners and the compression industry.
With 130 million kg of Biomethane forecast to be injected into the gas grid in 2015, huge domestic shale gas resources and with National Grid installing an LNG road tanker loading facility at the Isle of Grain in 2015, there is now potential for a major move away from diesel for trucks and buses.
Lucy Ritchie, client manager, EU Skills Networks and responsible for managing the small business network says:
“Having secured funding from the UK Commission for Employment and Skills through the Growth and Innovation Fund we are very excited about hosting our first NGV conference day. There are lots of businesses already involved in the NGV Network, as funding is to support their growth in the industry and I’m looking forward to meeting more industry experts at the event.”
