Research and Development

A key component of the Partnership's immediate and long term goals involves the research, development and demonstration of natural gas engines and fueling technology. Following a prioritized ranking of R&D goals, the CNGVP intends to:

  • Initiate programs to integrate natural gas engines into more medium- and heavy-duty platforms.
  • Initiate multi-year engine research and development programs to achieve 2007 emissions and match higher-horsepower ratings of large on-road diesels.
  • Encourage legislative/California Public Utilities Commission mandate that increases funding for public-purpose research for NGVs.
  • Lead national NGV research efforts on engine development and emissions reductions.
  • Create a bridge to zero-emission hydrogen-fueled vehicles.
