Roadmap for the Deployment Medium-and-Heavy-Duty Natural Gas Vehicles in Brazil

Washington, D.C., 8 December 2021

This year-long project supported Argonne National Laboratory in the coordination and facilitation of the development of a roadmap between the Brazilian government and industry stakeholders on natural gas medium-and heavy-duty vehicle deployment.  Work was carried out on behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of International Affairs (IA), as well as for DOE's Vehicles Technology Office (VTO) Technology Integration program; 
providing technical support for the Brazilian  Natural Gas Vehicle Program. 

The Final Report to Argonne National Laboratory and the U.S. DOE staff included an overview of the most salient presentations at the seminar and also provided a brief Brazilian NGV Profile, including a view of the Brazilian energy, environment, and government policy views toward alternative fuels. The various opportunities and challenges facing Brazilian policy makers and NGV industry stakeholders were identified.

    Critical Issues Workshop #6

    CNG & LNG Safety: Perception & Reality

    8-9 October 2014
    Brussels, Belgium

    This sixth in the series of Clean Fuels Consulting Critical Issues Workshops since 2008 gathered 50 experts from 16 countries on four continents representing natural gas vehicle (NGV) stakeholders, including equipment manufacturers and suppliers, vehicle manufacturers, government policy makers and others to identify and address the most critical safety issues related to compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) as vehicle fuels. The presentations and discussion focused on the current standards and regulatory state-of-play related to CNG and LNG fuel storage systems, vehicle technologies, and fuelling options. The workshop participants addressed existing gaps as well as some of the opportunities to fill the gaps in order to facilitate further market development and commercialization of NGVs.

    The opening presentation by Dr. Seisler, Links and Gaps in the NGV Safety Chain: An Overview of NGV Safety Perceptions and Reality can be downloaded here.

    Issues Associated with Gas Composition and Quality
    NGV Global Technology Forum, Long Beach, California
    5 May 2014

    Natural gas composition poses many challenges for the natural gas vehicle sector, whether it is compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG) or biomethane upgraded from raw biogas.  Each NGV stakeholder -- gas supplier, vehicle manufacturer, and customer -- has a different view of 'what is important.'  While there are a vareity of national and international standards for gas composition, because the fuel is 'natural' harmonization has not yet been and likely won't be achieved.  This brief presentation demonstrates the range of gas compositions found in CNG and LNG and identifies the importance that 'quality' gas will bring to the vehicle transport sector.

    NGVs Past and Prologue: Lessons Learned to Creating Deployment Strategies for Commercializing NGVs

    Presentation to Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and the U.S. Department of Energy, 1 May 2014

    Prepared on contract to ANL and the U.S. DOE, this two hour presentation attempts to summarize 30 years’ experience and ‘lessons learned’ in global NGV development.  A broad overview of world NGV activities and trends is presented in the first section.  This is followed by ‘lessons learned’ in technology, standards (poli-techs) development, politics, and in deployment of the fueling infrastructure for NGVs.  This extensive and comprehensive presentation of more than 170 slides chronicles many experiences in technology and policy making that can be used to avoid past mistakes and capitalize on many successes in the world NGV market. 

    The complete presentation is available upon request to Clean Fuels Consulting.

    Natural Gas for Transportation

    This one page, comprehensive matrix demonstrates the author’s view of the short, mid-and long-term development of natural gas vehicle commercialization. Several time periods are provided, representing the early adopters, mainstream adopters, and market acceptance phase to 2025 and beyond. Four areas of strategic market and technological focus include:  market development; equipment/technology development; fuelling infrastructure development; and government affairs (legislative and regulatory). The first matrix was development in 2002 and updated in 2005. It remains a remarkably stable view of the unfolding developments in the NGV world market....at that time!

    Download this matrix.

    Hydrogen for Transportation

    This matrix focuses on hydrogen vehicle commercial development using the same framework as is shown in the comprehensive matrix demonstrating the phased development for natural gas vehicles. Many of the commercialization patterns of development can be directly traced back to how NGVs are developing in the global market, including the development of technology, standards, fuelling stations, etc. This view of hydrogen vehicle  (H2V) development was first created in 2002 and remains as a relatively ‘realistic’ guideline for the current progress of H2V commercial activities...at that time!
