Likewise, he has highlighted the transversality of its members as an outstanding value that will provide a great wealth of knowledge and visions and will allow the association to face the long-awaited challenge of the decarbonization of the different modes of transport.
Regarding future plans, López stated “natural gas has proven to be a mature, real, clean and cost-competitive technology for ships, locomotives, light and heavy vehicles. In this new stage from GASNAM we are going to continue working so that the use of gases of renewable origin (biomethane and hydrogen) also becomes a reality in Spain, following the rest of Europe”.
