America’s Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA) and the American Gas Association (AGA) announced that the organizations will work together to advance the development and utilization of natural gas vehicles and fueling infrastructure in North America. The new coalition brings together more than 50 producers and distributors of natural gas.

The ANGA-AGA joint initiative is intended to encourage stakeholder discussions to promote greater use of North American natural gas for transportation. Specifically, the effort will focus on infrastructure development, greater fleet usage, vehicle production, and marketing and education for natural gas transportation.

“Advancing our country’s energy independence is vital and we are pleased to work directly with AGA to develop and promote policies that will make an American natural gas transportation network a reality,” said ANGA president and CEO, Regina Hopper. “This will make it easier for businesses and consumers to embrace this clean, affordable and domestic transportation choice.”

This latest announcement is another example of the momentum building behind the use of natural gas as a vehicle fuel. Earlier this month, a new membership organization dedicated to advancing the use of natural gas in the U.S. transportation sector, was also launched. Dubbed the Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) Fleet Forum, the group was formed to provide a members-only venue for fleet operators to share technical expertise, collaborate on product development and procurement, and support other members in the successful deployment of natural gas vehicles.
