Vehicles and NGV stations in Europe

This map represents the number of NGV vehicles and stations across European countries (E.U 28) in 2018.
The utilization of natural gas for mobility purpose significantly differs from one country to another. Italy (1262 stations) and Germany (861 stations) are currently leading the European market while other countries such as Ireland, Latvia, Croatia or Romania are currently implementing their first NGV stations. The sector is supported by the EU which adopted a new regulation in 2014. The AFI directive (Alternative Fuel Infrastructures) aims to guarantee a sufficient cover in NGV supply stations across the E.U.
The involvement of the E.U to support this sector can be seen through significant progresses within some countries in 2018. For example, France (+16 stations), Czech Republic (+10), and Italy (+43) have significantly increased their NGV supply network.
