The Drive Natural Gas Initiative, a collaboration between the American Gas Association (AGA) and America's Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA), is integrating its activities with trade group NGVAmerica to help promote the use of natural gas in transportation.
AGA and ANGA initially launched the Drive Natural Gas Initiative in 2010 as a two-year collaboration between the natural gas utility and natural gas production communities. It was then extended for a third year in 2013. Now, AGA, ANGA and NGVAmerica have opted to ‘combine resources and help allow more Americans to benefit from the economic, environmental and energy security opportunities provided by natural gas.’
‘This reorganized NGVAmerica will really help demonstrate to people the many benefits of employing natural gas vehicles as a growing part of our highway fleet,’ says Marty Durbin, ANGA's president and CEO.
The AGA, which was founded in 1918, represents more than 200 local energy companies that deliver natural gas throughout the U.S.
