2. ROUNDTABLE ON NATURAL GAS USES IN TRANSPORTATION
On October 25, IAGS will host a roundtable discussion on the topic Natural Gas Uses in Transportation: Liquid? Gas? Electric?
Natural gas can power compressed natural gas vehicles; it can be used to generate electricity which in turn powers electric vehicles, and it can be converted into a variety of liquid fuels like methanol, diesel, gasoline and dimethyl ether (DME). The options are many, and in the face of high oil prices the economics of replacing petroleum products with natural gas fuels are compelling. What are the most economic paths forward? What are the technology challenges and market barriers facing each option and what policies are needed to overcome them? The roundtable will bring together experts and industry leaders to discuss the most optimal uses of natural gas in the Asian transportation sector.
