Description:The Green Fuels Challenge aims to stimulate industry to develop practical proposals for alternative fuels.

It also included duty reductions or exemptions for pilot studies for vehicles running on alternative fuels, in particular fuels for use in fuel cells, such as hydrogen and methanol.
