The measures that we need to develop electric vehicles can also be used for NGV fuel. This includes subsidies for the development of this type of transport. We advocate abolishing import duties on electric cars, letting traffic drive in carpool lanes, free traffic on toll roads, and free parking. VAT subsidies are in place in several regions of Russia — Iya Gordeyeva, Chairperson, Association for the Development of Electric, Unmanned, and Connected Transport and Infrastructure (AETI).
If you want to increase the infrastructure network by several times in the near future and thus create demand for transport [using the new fuels], we need to subsidize this process. We will come to the government with an initiative to subsidize up to 25–35% of capital costs for every filling station — Anton Inyutsyn, Deputy Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation.
We are transferring about 30 hectares of land fully equipped with infrastructure to anyone who comes to Tatarstan to build CNG stations — Shamil Gafarov, Deputy Prime Minister, Republic of Tatarstan – Chief of Staff, Cabinet of Ministers, Republic of Tatarstan.
We have converted about 2,000 units of equipment and made them run on gas. We have adopted a special programme in the republic to subsidize and convert vehicles to compressed natural gas — Shamil Gafarov, Deputy Prime Minister, Republic of Tatarstan – Chief of Staff, Cabinet of Ministers, Republic of Tatarstan.
We are studying the issue of converting technology to a gas-diesel mode because it is now possible, quite cheap, and, most importantly, it is for the environment — Yerlan Nurpeisov, General Director, Green Auto Service; Member of the Working Group of the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan for Development of the Market of Gas Engine Fuel in Kazakhstan.
