Methane for cars, exponential growth in Belgium
Distribution network quadrupled in four years. The plans of Wallonia
The first point of sale of methane for cars in Wallonia was opened in 2015, whereas 25 of them
had already been located in the Flemish Region. Now, there are 25 filling stations in Wallonia, 94
in Flanders 94, and around 120 across Belgium, which marks a four-fold increase in four years.
These are the findings presented at a round table of the sector's operators present in the country
and the institutions.
“In 2018, Wallonia approved its Climate Plan that sets ambitious goals for methane and LNG in transport by 2030,” explained Minister of Energy, Jean-Luc Crucke, underlining that the strategy establishes for the Region “a target of 220 CNG and 25 LNG refueling stations by 2030.” In order to accomplish these targets, Crucke adds, two calls for proposals worth 17 m euros have been issued: “ Close public and private cooperation is essential to attain the objectives for alternative fuels.”& amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; lt; /p>
