Algeria completes green programme, converts 200,000 vehicles to LPG

The Minister of Energy Transition and Renewable Energies Benattou Ziane announced that their medium-term programme, aimed at speeding up the country’s energy transition and reducing conventional fuel consumption, has been successfully completed.

The plan has been completed by the entry into service of many projects at the national level, such as the conversion of nearly 200,000 vehicles to Autogas and the encouragement to locally produce renewable energy.

The Minister informed that 200,000 vehicles were equipped with LPG technology in Algeria, including 50,000 taxis, thanks to the deployment of more than 550 conversion workshops at the national level, and stressed that the programme supports this operation with a discount of 50%. These conversions will continue in order to protect the environment, in addition to reduce the consumption of conventional fuels.

In the long term, the Ministry of Energy Transition aspires to contribute to the execution of other major investments, the integration of previous achievements and the launch of a green hydrogen production project. The ministry also plans to launch a fuel cell project for hydrogen vehicles and trucks. For more information, please check here.
