Scotland bets on LPG and LNG

Scotland may be a part of the UK, but has its own, partially autonomous government, making decisions regarding such matters as taxes or energy strategies. As far as the latter are concerned, the latest plan is to put more emphasis on gaseous fuels.

Autogas for cleaner air

Scottish authorities aim to reduce greenhouse emissions from transport and heating. For that to happen, gaseous fuels (LPG and LNG) are to be deployed to a greater extent than to date. Under the new strategy, the government will also engage in developing renewable fuels, among them possibly bioLPG – a fuel that has all the properties and advantages of conventional LPG, but with virtually neutral carbon footprint. Just as fossil-sourced LPG, bioLPG can be used as autogas, i.e. affordable and environmentally friendly motor fuel. As for the latter feature, thanks to the transition from fossil to renewable, autogas will be more so than ever.

Scotland’s new energy strategy places a welcome emphasis on the role of alternative hydrocarbons and green gas to help reduce emissions in the power generation, road and marine transport and low carbon domestic and industrial heating sectors. In particular we agree with the Scottish Government’s conclusion that LPG derived from renewable sources can help to achieve these targets where the current infrastructure is able to meet the expected growth in demand.
