Schwarzenegger Signs Executive Order Setting Low Carbon Fuel Standard

Natural gas vehicles will need “strong regulatory support” to provide a meaningful boost to US gas demand in this decade, owing in part to a dearth of refueling infrastructure, says Barclays analyst Shiyang Wang. Natural gas is far cheaper on an energy-equivalent basis than diesel, offering an obvious incentive to make the switch from a… Keep reading →

As US natural gas producers note the benefits of existing infrastructure while seeking ways of stimulating demand for newly abundant shale gas, questions continue to swirl about the total cost of conversion.

Beyond the potential of natural gas for the long-haul trucking industry, as championed by Texas oilman T. Boone Pickens, gas advocates say private cars are a clear target market, since gas as an auto fuel is currently roughly less than half the cost of gasoline, while at the same time emitting much lower levels of greenhouse gases.

It’s hard to avoid the issue of gasoline prices during an election year. But in an effort to avoid gasoline altogether, some large companies are avoiding the issue altogether by cashing in on significant fuel cost savings and accelerating moves to switch over their vehicle fleets to run on compressed natural gas.

This video features Ken Nicholson, General Manger of Clean Energy Fuels in Dallas discussing the benefits of CNG and Brent Pope, Director of Sales for BAF Technologies talking about how his company converts gasoline and diesel fueled vehicles to run on CNG.

With decade-low natural gas prices threatening to dampen America’s shale-gas boom, gas-producing states are looking for ways to stimulate demand from cars and light trucks.

Ten states have signed a memorandum of understanding that aims to persuade automakers in the US to mass-produce competitively priced cars that will run on natural gas, providing a new outlet for abundant domestic supplies of the cleaner-burning fuel. The signatories are seeking more support. Keep reading →
