June 3: Changes Introduced to Encourage Use of Natural Gas in Transportation


The government announced changes to the GHG regulation to encourage more fleet operators to switch from diesel and gasoline to cleaner-burning natural gas in their buses, trucks and marine vessels. A natural gas vehicle produces 20-30% fewer GHG emissions compared to a gasoline or diesel vehicle. The changes will let utilities expand incentives to fleet operators to convert to natural gas as their primary or secondary fuel and advance the development of more natural gas fuelling stations.
