NREL CNG and Fleets: Building the Business Case

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) produces online resources to help fleets evaluate the economic soundness of a compressed natural gas program.

Natural gas is a clean-burning, abundant, and domestically produced energy source. In the fleet world, these attributes have garnered growing interest in compressed natural gas (CNG) for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, including transit buses, school buses, refuse trucks, delivery trucks, paratransit shuttles, and taxis.  CNG can also reduce operating costs and offer relative price stability compared to conventional petroleum fuels. For fleets considering a transition to CNG, there are many aspects of CNG vehicles and fueling infrastructure that impact the viability and financial soundness of such a move. Analyzing these aspects to assess the economic feasibility of a CNG conversion can be a complex process, but there are tools to make it easier.
