The weight of natural gas in the mobility sector varies significantly between the different European countries. Italy (1 542 stations) and Germany (777 stations) dominate the European market, while countries such as Ireland, Slovenia or Romania have a recent development that is struggling to take off.
Some European countries have implemented policies that are very favorable to the NGV industry. Indeed, France and Germany have an advantageous tax system for NGV vehicles. Since January 1, 2019, NGV vehicles over 7.5 tons are exempt from motorway tolls corresponding to the tax on air pollution.
