Abstract Natural gas is a potential long-term substitution for existing liquid fuel based technologies in heavy duty vehicles, but more research is required to assess the economic likelihood of this pathway. The software tool that Element Energy will develop will calculate the total greenhouse gas emissions (known in the industry as “well to motion”) and the subsequent associated costs for different gas production pathways. It will also consider how the influence of product development over time could influence the cost, performance, technology choices and the market take-up of liquefied natural gas and compressed natural gas.
Element Energy, the strategic energy consultancy specialising in the analysis of and technical insights into low carbon energy markets are the prime contractor delivering this year long £300,000 contract. They are joined with sub-contract support from University College London, CNG Services Ltd, and Strateco AB
