Andrea Gerini said, “I am very pleased and honoured to serve NGVA Europe and to bring my expertise on the use of natural gas as transportation fuel, and especially in the current scenario where we will assist to a multiplication of the powertrain solutions as well as to a wider diversification of the primary energy sources. The use of natural gas as a transportation fuel brings excellent benefits that can significantly contribute to decarbonise the transport sector and improve the air quality, thanks to a mature, affordable and available technology. Natural gas, both as CNG and LNG and especially when produced from a wide range of renewable sources, will be a main player to perfectly support the transition to a real low-emission mobility.”

NGVA Europe looks forward to continue paving the road to sustainable mobility by highlighting the important role that the use of gas in transport can play and will keep working closely with EU policy makers, the NGV industry, gas companies and vehicle operators.

Andrea Gerini succeeds Matthias Maedge, who will now act as the General Delegate of IRU (International Road Union) Brussels Delegation.
