Guide: against the background of rising oil prices, the voice of replacing oil with gas is getting higher and higher. As a clean energy, the application of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in automobiles will also become a trend. Yaomingde, President of China Road Transport Association, told the media a few days ago that the project
in the context of rising oil prices, the voice of "replacing oil with gas" is getting louder and louder. As a clean energy, the application of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in automobiles will also become a trend. The experimental power and experimental curve of computer screen display
yaomingde, President of China Road Transport Association, told the media a few days ago: "at present, relevant departments in China are also constantly promoting the use of clean energy in commercial vehicles."
according to a source, the 12th Five Year Plan for natural gas prepared by the national energy administration has passed the review and submitted to the State Council for approval, which is expected to be announced soon. This news may open a way for LNG heavy trucks
on August 8, Zhang Guobao, director of the expert advisory committee of the National Energy Commission, said at the "2012 China LNG Heavy Truck Industry Development Summit Forum" that in the stage when it will take time for electric vehicles to be accepted by the society, the development of natural gas commercial vehicles is a correct way to solve environmental, energy and other problems. LNG heavy trucks have great development potential under the consideration of technology, cost and other factors
Zhuobin, an associate professor of the school of machinery and power at Shanghai Jiaotong University, also said at the forum that China's LNG vehicles have increased at an average annual rate of more than 20% in the past two years, while the sales of compressed natural gas (hereinafter referred to as "CNG") vehicles have increased at an average annual rate of more than 30%. However, at present, the market share of natural gas vehicles is only 5%, and there is huge room for development
under the background of high oil prices, China's LNG heavy trucks have shown a rapid growth trend in the past two years. When the domestic heavy truck market fell by more than 13% last year, LNG heavy trucks soared at a growth rate of 30%. At present, many heavy truck enterprises, including beiben heavy truck, Foton Auman, Hongyan, Valin, Universiade and so on, have also listed stepping up the layout of the LNG heavy truck market as one of the priorities of this year's work
long Hongwei, director of Shaanxi Automobile Group, believes that the natural gas heavy truck will show a rapid growth trend of doubling in the next few years, and the target of Shaanxi Automobile Group LNG heavy truck during the "12th Five Year Plan" period is 50000 vehicles, and the planned production capacity will reach more than 100000 vehicles by the end of the "12th Five Year Plan"
it is learned that the Ministry of transport will expand the scope of natural gas vehicle pilot cities this year, from 16 to 26 at present, and even give cash subsidies and other incentives to enterprises. By 2013, the number of domestic LNG filling stations will increase to more than 2000. The industry predicts that with the news of natural gas price reform coming one after another, natural gas automobile products may face great explosion potential
infrastructure is not in place
however, although LNG heavy trucks are regarded as a new growth pole to "save the market", due to the lack of supporting infrastructure such as gas stations and maintenance stations, it is still difficult to promote LNG heavy trucks on a large scale
Zhang Guifu, chief of the market product planning section of Baotou beiben heavy duty truck Co., Ltd., said in an interview that if the gas filling station can keep up with the development of market demand and form a more perfect situation, the natural gas heavy truck market will account for about 1/3 to 2/3 of the total heavy truck market in the future. However, the current national policy does not support and encourage the classification of natural gas as new energy, and the market development prospect is not clear
Jiang Jianhua, director of the public relations department of SAIC Iveco Hongyan Commercial Vehicle Co., Ltd., believes that policies or subsidies alone are not enough. The key lies in the construction of supporting facilities. He said: "at present, various LNG products enterprises have been doing it, but the relevant infrastructure is not in place. For example, Chongqing still has no gas stations, so it is difficult to promote the products on a large scale."
in this regard, Zhang Guifu also said: "the natural gas market still depends on policies to promote, especially the construction of infrastructure, which is difficult to expand by enterprises alone. To build a mobile gas station, it is often necessary to invest millions, and due to geographical restrictions, it is difficult to approve land. For automotive enterprises, the cost is too high, and the profit of heavy trucks is not necessarily very high."
in addition to the relatively lagging infrastructure and unclear industrial planning, the fluctuation of oil prices is also one of the important factors hindering the development of natural gas vehicles at present
Zhang Guifu pointed out that although the cost of using gas can be saved by more than 30% compared with using oil, the current price of LNG heavy trucks is 70000-80000 yuan higher than that of traditional fuel heavy trucks, which is equivalent to an additional investment of about 30% in the cost of buying cars, which is unacceptable to many users; On the other hand, at present, the price of oil and gas is still fluctuating. If the price of natural gas rises to more than 80% of the price of gasoline, users will "not be profitable"
according to the prediction of Sinopec economic and Technological Research Institute, by 2015, China's natural gas production is expected to reach 185 billion cubic meters, the demand will reach 260 billion cubic meters, and the gap between supply and demand will reach 75 billion cubic meters
therefore, the industry generally expects that the upcoming 12th Five Year Plan for natural gas will provide clear plans in promoting the diversification of natural gas supply, promoting the reform of natural gas prices, and increasing the construction of downstream natural gas channels
