GAS NATURAL FENOSA takes part in the second Galicia Energy Fair, a meeting point and platform for technical and social dissemination about all types of energy. The fair will be held from today in Silleda (Pontevedra) until Saturday 24 March. The main themes of the fair are renewable energy, bioenergy and alternative fuels for the transport and farming industries, as well as sustainable mobility.

The energy company has a large stand at the fair, where guests are offered information about innovative and sustainable solutions such as mobility with vehicular natural gas, digitisation of the electricity distribution network to provide better information to connected customers, and the development of new technologies associated with biogas or renewable gas.

In Silleda, GAS NATURAL FENOSA will be presenting its plan to increase the number of CNG (compressed natural gas) stations for vehicles in Spain throughout this year, in order to allow vehicle natural gas to expand in Spain and respond to increases in demand in upcoming years. In Galicia, during the first stage, two gas refuelling stations will be opened in A Coruña and Vigo. GAS NATURAL FENOSA currently has 31 public natural gas stations operating in Spain, out of a total of 57 in operation nationwide.
