January 29, 2018

The Spanish Ministry of Energy, Tourism and the Digital Agenda statement, indicated that Spain began testing the world’s first Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) fuelled passenger train.
The ministry says that the project is part of Spain’s “decarbonisation” plan which is supposed to cover the usage of productive and energy-efficient railways and promote the usage of vehicles using alternate energies within the country.
The Spanish Minister of Energy, Tourism and the Digital Agenda, Mr. Alvaro Nadal and the Minister of Development, Mr. Inigo de la Serna attended the first pilot test of the train in the north-western city of Asturias.
As per the analysis of the International Energy Agency’s Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Technology Collaboration Program, on June 26, 2015, the Spanish government propelled the use of another technique to promote alternate energy vehicles between 2014 and 2020 in Spain. The technique aims at making Spain, a model nation in leading elective fuel vehicles, for example, LPG, flammable gas, biofuels, and hydrogen including electric advancements, as per the examination.
The strategy focuses on three main lines of action – industrialization, market and infrastructure deployment, the IEA said.
