On March 21, 2012, Calgary Economic Development, the Canada West Foundation and the Van Horne Institute hosted a half day conference to explore the future of natural gas as a transportation fuel. The morning commenced with a keynote address by W.A. Sam Shaw, Vice President, Natural Gas Policy Development, Encana, followed by two panel discussions featuring experts from both the Natural Gas and Transportation industries.
Fuel Forward: Propelling Transportation with Natural Gas introduced and showcased new innovations and examined how natural gas can be moved forward as a marketable alternative to other fuel options.
Thank you to our sponsors, speakers, and all participants who attended Fuel Forward. The Canada West Foundation will use the information and ideas from the conference and the subsequent roundtable to author a document on using natural gas as a transportation fuel in the future. Stay tuned for a copy of this report.
