Number of CNG Vehicles in Moscow (Russia) to Surge by 2013

Tue, 07/09/2010 - 12:40

According to Gravitas Research analysis, CNG vehicle parc in Moscow is expected to experience dramatic increase to reach 30,000 units by the end of 2013 driven by Moscow City Government initiative to promote re-orientation of the Moscow’s public and private transport toward wider utilization of alternative fuels including CNG and ethanol.

Number of passenger cars, commercial vehicles and buses running on CNG in Moscow is expected to grow from current <1,000 vehicles to 30,000 vehicles by 2013 if Decree of Moscow City Government 553-PP from 29.06.2010 “Current Status and Further Measures to Promote the Use of Compressed Natural Gas as a Motor Fuel for the Automotive Transport in Moscow” is fully implemented within 2010-2012 indicates latest analytical report published by Gravitas Research.

As Moscow’s vehicle parc reached 3.2 million passenger cars, 0.35 million of commercial vehicles and 0.05 million buses (including public buses) in 2009, ecological impact of intensively growing automotive parc is catching attention of Moscow City Government as total share of auto transport contribution to air pollution in the city reaches 82 per cent.

One of the solutions to the deteriorating urban environment in Moscow is transition of auto transport to alternative fuels such as CNG. Drastic growth in the number of CNG vehicles operating in Moscow is expected to be driven by expansion of CNG refuelling network, transition of public and Governmental fleets to CNG, and attractive incentives given to private auto fleet owners. Russia being currently on the 15th place in the World by the number of CNG vehicles is expected to advance rapidly to overtake Armenia, Egypt and Bolivia with total fleet of CNG vehicles exceeding 130,000 by 2013.
