Blue Corridor: Virtual Tour 2020

The year 2020 has changed the usual order of many things, and the Blue Corridor project is not an exception. As socially responsible companies, Gazprom and Uniper have decided to cancel the traditional natural gas-powered vehicles convoy through major European cities in order to minimize public interaction. In order to adapt to the current pandemic situation, we are changing our approach and organizing this round of the Blue Corridor NGV rally in a new virtual format.

Over the last months of 2020, a series of round tables and meetings will be held in the European capitals, together with our partners all across Europe. Depending on the local restrictions, round tables will be organized either as online discussions, or in the traditional offline mode, with an opportunity to join online.  Where the current local Covid-19 situation allows further activities, these events will be also accompanied by our traditional exhibitions of gas-fueled vehicles.

This year, the main focus of the ‘Blue Corridor Rally’ is on promotion of low-carbon liquid and gaseous fuels in a dialogue with politicians. The current EU regulation on emission standards for new passenger cars and vans picks electric vehicles as a ‘silver bullet’ to achieve climate protection goals. We propose a technological neutral position and give low-carbon liquid and gaseous fuels the chance to quickly help reducing CO2 emission in the road transport sector. The review of European emission standards, planned by June 2021 in the context of the Green Deal, gives the industry a chance to introduce a comprehensive well-to-wheel emission analysis approach. We consider this as an important opportunity for the NGV industry to gain its deserved place in the clean mobility of the future.
