ECO-GATE: European COrridors for natural GAs Transport Efficiency

EU Directive 2014/94/EU foresees the construction of alternative fuel refuelling infrastructure in Europe. The Action includes a study of the conventional and renewable NGV market on the Mediterranean, Atlantic and partly Rhine-Danube Corridors, covering also parts of the Core Network in Spain and France. This study, in the form of a real-life trial, involves construction and monitoring of L-CNG and CNG refuelling stations. It utilises new technologies and innovative solutions in regard to supply logistics services, cleaner fuels, refuelling infrastructure, vehicle and components manufacturers and operational processes. Once finished, the study will serve as a basis for a large-scale deployment of cost reduced technology.
