Advocating for Natural Gas Vehicles in California!
The California Natural Gas Vehicle Coalition is an advocacy and education association of natural gas vehicle and engine manufacturers, utilities, fuel providers and fleet operators serving the state. We are united in the belief that wider adoption of clean-running natural gas vehicles (NGVs)—a proven technology in use worldwide—is key to helping California reduce greenhouse gas emissions, air pollution and petroleum dependence.
The Coalition is the industry’s premier advocacy organization in California. We support new initiatives, provide up-to-date information on NGV technology and market developments, and work with legislators and regulators to develop policies that will increase alternative fuel and vehicle use. We also advise stakeholders on testing and demonstration programs and help NGV-related businesses break into the California market.
The Coalition in Action
We work with state regulators and legislators throughout the year to shape and advance NGV-related policies. Examples of the Coalition’s regulatory work include providing crucial information on NGV market economics and technology developments to the California Energy Commission and California Air Resources Board, contributing technical analyses to the state’s well-to-wheels fuel-cycle emissions reports, participating in Low Carbon Fuel Standard working groups, and serving on the Advisory Committee for the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program.
