Alternative fuels: CNG is emerging as a serious contender

Sales of compressed natural gas (CNG) cars have increased significantly over the last two years in Germany, and indeed in Europe as a whole. As CNG vehicles can be refueled at home, they offer added practicality, and this, added to the growing backlash against biofuels, gives CNG the potential to become a significant player in the alternative fuels market over the next few years.

A 10-year GBP13bn agreement with Statoil, starting in 2015, will see 50 billion cubic meters of gas transported to the UK. The deal is a good move as it reduces UK dependence on Russian gas through European interconnectors.

Aquila will move out of energy trading and will sell over $1 billion in assets, to bolster its balance sheet and secure its credit rating.
