Natural Gas Vehicle Research Roadmap

Natural Gas Vehicle Research Roadmap Consultant Report Done by the California Energy Commission.

The California Energy Commission’s Natural Gas Vehicle Research Roadmap identifies initiatives and projects that research, develop, demonstrate, and deploy advanced fuel-efficient natural gas powered transportation technologies and fuel switching strategies that result in a cost-effective reduction of on-road and off-road petroleum fuel use in the short and long term. Research roadmap findings show that there exists a lack of heavy-duty and off-road engines sizes or capacity, and that vehicle integration of new engines is a significant hurdle to greater natural gas vehicle availability and market penetration. Specific research topics include Engine Development and Vehicle Integration, Fueling Infrastructure and Storage and Technical and Strategic Studies.
