Natural Resources Canada's ecoENERGY for Alternative Fuels program is supporting a series of workshops designed to educate fleets about vehicles that run on compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG).
These half-day workshops will focus on medium- and heavy-duty natural gas vehicles. Topics to be covered include NGV project implementation, and the economic and environmental benefits of CNG and LNG use in transportation applications.
‘Natural gas for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles is one of the biggest made-in-Canada environmental stories of the decade,’ says Douglas Stout, vice president of FortisBC and chair of the Canadian Natural Gas Vehicle Alliance. ‘Canadian innovation created the engines that can replace diesel with natural gas, and this technology is being used to transform the heavy vehicle transportation sector in North America. Switching to natural gas is a strategy that all fleet owners should be considering.’
Workshops are scheduled for the following locations and dates:
- Laval, QC: Feb. 13 (conducted in French)
- London, ON: Feb. 18
- Mississauga, ON: Feb. 19
- Calgary, AB: Feb. 19
- Drummondville, QC: Feb. 20 (conducted in French)
- Vancouver, BC: Feb. 26
