Accelerating adoption of greener, cleaner fuels
Transportation is the largest source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Ontario. Electric vehicles will play an important role in reducing emissions. Many vehicles however, such as heavy transport trucks, can’t be electrified with the technology available today.
The transportation path to net zero outlines how we’re accelerating the adoption of clean fuels, like renewable natural gas (RNG), investing in low-emission technologies like compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles and exploring ways to provide hydrogen for fuel cell electric vehicles.
Innovation in action
Renewable natural gas (RNG)
We’re unlocking the potential of organic waste, transforming it into a renewable green fuel for a cleaner commute.
Ontario’s first carbon-negative bus
In Hamilton, Ontario, switching from diesel to RNG diverts 450 tonnes of landfill and the emissions that would otherwise be released into the air, for a cleaner commute.
Turning Green Bin waste into fuel for fleets
The City of Toronto processes 35 percent of its organic waste from its Green Bin program. It’s then transformed into carbon-neutral RNG.
Compressed natural gas (CNG)
For heavy-duty vehicles that can’t be electrified today, CNG is a proven alternative that lowers emissions immediately to deliver the goods we depend on more sustainably.
UPS delivers on sustainable transport
United Parcel Service (UPS) | London, Ontario
Converting 25 package delivery vans to operate on CNG will reduce 700 metric tonnes of GHG emissions—equivalent to removing 152 cars from the road.
We’re innovating to advance renewable hydrogen in Ontario. It’s being used today to store renewable energy and over time can be used as a clean fuel for vehicles.
