Incentives for purchasing of CBG/CNG heavy duty distribution vehicles

In the city of Göteborg there is a large quantity of distribution transport and transport through the city.

This leads to high emissions of NOx and particulates. The increased heavy and distribution traffic is a major problem for the city planners, both from a pollution and health aspect, and from a congestion aspect. Already many substances are over the air quality norms that will be legally binding from 2006.

One of the purposes with this measure was to influence the private sector to open opportunities for an environmentally sound transport concept. To achieve this the following tasks were to be performed within the measure.

The objective of the measure is to decrease emissions of NOx and particles for heavy traffic and distribution traffic in the city of Göteborg by influencing private companies to choose clean HD and distribution vehicles instead of conventional HD and distribution vehicles.

From the start year 2002 the project was oriented towards the Göteborg harbour. The target group was the transit transport back and forward to the harbor. The demonstration measure measurable objective was to exchange 10 heavy vehicles to CNG heavy vehicles. A fuelling station was supposed to be built in the harbour area to meet the increased demand.
