Congreso Internacional de GNC y Otros Combustibles Gaseosos

Buenos Aires, noviembre 2011


Market variables l.jpg
Market Variables

  • US CNG market growth has remained stagnant, few exceptions aside

  • Comparative fuel economics good for commercial applications but not enough to spur significant consumer adoption

  • Relatively short vehicle range, big factor

  • Limited consumer education about virtues of CNG

  • Political dynamics with fuel competitors at the local/state levels

  • US EPA fuel economy regulations, California Zero-Emission Vehicle Program, Federal fleet requirements, and other regulatory measures have had limited impact on CNG markets

  • CNG has never been too sexy!

  • Honda Civic approximate retail prices

$15,805

$24,050

$26,155


Capital costs l.jpg
Capital Costs

  • Chicken-and-egg problem exacerbated by high upfront costs of conversions and conventional infrastructure

  • Low relative price of CNG and federal/state programs do not yield sufficiently low IRR for many applications

  • Factors affecting conversion costs may include labor, US EPA/CARB permitting, low demand, others

  • Factors affecting infrastructure deployment costs may include low demand, limited competition, permitting, others




Opportunities on cng storage l.jpg
Opportunities on CNG Storage

  • Sistemas ANG

  • Tests mostraron limitaciones con performance of altos V/V

  • Nuevos desarrollos en materiales y nano estructuras

  • Fuel system vs. cartridge system

  • Oportunidades en diseños innovativos e integración de sistemas


Opportunities on cng distribution l.jpg
Opportunities on CNG Distribution

  • Virtual pipeline concepts

  • Home refueling and vehicle-distribution integration

  • HCNG—synergies between CNG and hydrogen
