The EU and several national governments support the use of methane in transport through regulations, tax breaks and subsidies. The gas industry – which is faced with stagnating or declining demand in other sectors in Europe – sees transport as a major growth market.
The report is based on the most up to date literature, test results and data. It builds on a previous report by AEA-Ricardo but analyses in more detail issues such as the role of renewable methane (biomethane and power-to-methane) or the impact of tax policy. In tandem with publishing this report, T&E is also making available studies it commissioned regarding: the role of electromethane in transport; and taxation of gas in the EU. They are also available to download below.
