The initiative comprised economic/market studies, emissions and safety assessments, information and technology transfer and assistance to industry to promote and demonstrate cost-effective applications. This programme provided a contribution of $2,000 for each factory-built natural gas vehicle, a contribution of $500 for road vehicles converted to natural gas, a contribution to help foster new refuelling outlets, cost-shared marketing and awareness activities, and co-funded research and development.
