Energetic transition NGV

TANKYOU accelerates energy transition with NGV

Natural Gas for Vehicles is now available for corporate fleets.

all about NGV

TANKYOU accelerates BioNGV deployment

The mobility landscape is evolving across its entire industry, and alternative fuel combustion engines are taking up more and more space around the world. Future energies such as NGV are being defined, and TANKYOU is working to help companies make their fleet energy transition.

Legislation to promote clean energy development.

In Europe, there are now particle emission quotas imposed on companies. Indeed, in 2005 a single market was established to regulate emissions from industry and energy production in Europe, called the European Greenhouse Gas Emissions Trading System (ETS). Since the program was launched, CO2 and N20 emissions have been reduced by 21%. In 2021, we are entering the fourth and final phase of the program, which imposes lower quotas than in previous phases. The 2030 target is to reduce these emissions by an additional 2.2% each year. By 2024, diesel vehicles will no longer be able to operate in Paris.

These laws require companies to change their habits, especially in the transport sector. Indeed, an effective way to limit particles emissions is to initiate a fleet energy transition. The goal is to replace gasoline or diesel with a more environmentally neutral fuel.

Among "greener” alternatives to diesel is Natural Gas for Vehicles (NGV).

Tankyou already converted to NGV (in 2016, 78% of MBOs in the city of Paris are NGV vehicles).

NGV used as a fuel reduces up to 95% fine particles emissions and 50% NOx emissions compared to a similar diesel vehicle. Moreover, in terms of CO2 emissions, reduction is from 15 to 80%, if NGV is produced from organic waste (bio methane).

Lack of infrastructure, a NGV development brake.

Today, we find only 23 public NGV stations in Ile-de-France compared to more than 1100 petrol stations. Currently 17 new NGV stations are in the project phase for opening in the coming years.

In addition, these NGV stations require frequent maintenance operations, leading to recurring downtime. Finally, NGV is a fuel whose characteristics are still poorly controlled by operators, which can lead to fuel failures in NGV vehicles during the first months of use.

As a result, companies are faced with new constraints on their environmental impact despite a delay in infrastructure. These are not yet developed enough to allow a serene energy transition. This is why TANKYOU is committed to support fleet managers in various sectors on their new energies sources transition, including NGV.

TANKYOU solutions

TANKYOU offers a NGV breakdown service for over a year now, allowing broken-down vehicles to avoid expensive and time-consuming towing.

Our R&D engineering team is also working on NGV fleet refuelling service by the second half of 2021. Companies will fill up their NGV vehicle fleets without going to a station, for more independence from the lack of NGV supply infrastructure.

Moreover, TANKYOU is today supported by Paris&Co, the economic development and innovation agency of Paris and the metropolis, which allow us to carry out experiments around its NGV delivery services in Ile-de-France.

In August 2019, Tankyou was one of the startups awarded the Innov'up Leader PIA (Investments for the Future program) innovation competition by Bpifrance.

An award-winning project

And the other energies?

Other similar projects on hydrogen and electricity are ongoing, in collaboration with key players in these energies production.

Our goal is to support you in your energy transition, guaranteeing security, responsiveness and serenity.
