ETI project seeks to create ‘well to motion’ software tool to calculate greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the use of natural gas as a Heavy Duty Vehicle (HDV) fuel.

  • Project will develop a software modelling tool to portray greenhouse gas emissions produced in extraction, processing, transportation, storage and use of natural gas as HDV fuel
  • Software will assess the influence of current and future technology costs and performance levels, and hence, the potential market take up of natural gas powered vehicles
  • Proposals required by 6th June

The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) is calling on HDV manufacturers, SMEs and academics to create a software modelling tool that can accurately portray the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions produced in the extraction, processing, transportation, storage and use of natural gas as an HDV fuel.

ETI is looking for the new modelling tool to be designed to consider how the influence of product development over time might influence cost and performance, and hence technology choices and market take-up of liquefied natural gas and compressed natural gas.

The model will need to determine total GHG emissions - known in the sector as ‘well-to-motion’ - for different gas production pathways, the most cost-effective technologies, potential market size, and level of diesel fuel displacement within different markets.
