Speakers at Natural Gas Vehicle Day Announced

The Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) Network, the new body representing natural gas vehicles in the UK, today announced the speakers for the first Natural Gas Vehicle Day on 25 June. NGV Day, being held at the Motor Heritage Centre in Gaydon, will bring together key players in the natural gas for trucks and buses industry, showcasing the emission benefits of both compressed and liquid natural gas.

 

 

Speakers include Philip Leigh from the University of Central Lancashire, Tony Griffiths from the Gas Vehicle Alliance, James Westcott from GasRec and Paul Ocholla from National Grid LNG. They will be joined by EU Skills’ Nathan Baker, Clare Boam from the Department for Transport, Colin Matthews from JouleVert and speakers from BOC, Calor and ENN Group. Scania will be presenting their new Euro 6 dedicated CNG refuse truck and 350 bhp tractor.

Neil Robertson, Chief Executive of EU Skills, said:
 
“There are major benefits to both individual companies and the wider economy from running trucks and buses on natural gas. By working together at events such as NGV Day we can identify and amplify these benefits, and make the case for greater natural gas vehicle uptake more effectively.” 
 
The event comes at a crucial time for the industry, with new gas buses and trucks being launched, biomethane flourishing and a 10 year fixed fuel duty differential between gas and diesel. 
 
The event will bring together operators, vehicle manufacturers, gas suppliers, gas distribution companies, government departments and Local Authorities. NGV Day provides an opportunity to share market development experiences and help shape the future of the sector.
