Countries worldwide join to embrace further use of Autogas


A new study covering policies from Australia, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom, and United States, aims to explain why countries around the world promote the transition to Autogas and how they go about doing so based on an in-depth survey of some of the world’s largest Autogas markets.

The publication, launched by WLPGA, assesses what types of policies are most effective and why, and will help understand why sales of Autogas have been growing quickly in some countries, thanks to government policies to encourage the use of alternative fuels on account of its inherent environmental, practical and cost advantages over other such fuels.

However, it will also address while in some others countries, market development has been held back by ineffective or poorly-designed policies, such as unfavourable tax rates and regulations that fail to account fully for the social benefits of switching to Autogas.

“The most effective Autogas incentive policies are those that help to make the fuel more competitive against gasoline and diesel and give a strong financial Incentive for an end-user to switch to Autogas,” says the report.
