Nedgia Castilla-La Mancha and Albacete City Council study new gas-related projects

  • Distribution company managers in the Gas Natural Fenosa group region present the new brand to the mayor and seek synergies in new energy challenges

The Mayor of Albacete, Manuel Serrano, and the General Manager of Nedgia Castilla-La Mancha, Miguel Martín de Pinto, held a work meeting at Albacete City Hall today which was also attended by the distribution company’s provincial delegate, Manuel Sánchez as well as councillor for Public Works and Energy Efficiency, Julián Garijo.

At the meeting, the Gas Natural Fenosa group’s distribution company managers presented Albacete’s mayor with the new trademark Nedgia Castilla-La Mancha, which replaces Gas Natural Castilla-La Mancha, as well as some future projects, in which the Council and the energy company have some common interests, including the introduction of gas in new projects.

Among other issues, they discussed the actions taken by Nedgia Castilla-La Mancha to promote the use of vehicular natural gas as a cleaner transition fuel, as it reduces nitrogen oxide emissions by 85% and even 100% of the emission of particles, which has a major impact on air quality. This is a goal shared by the company and the City Hall, which is already acquiring gas-powered vehicles for the street cleaning and refuse collection services, where nearly 50% of the new fleet -29 of the 61 vehicles- are powered by CNG (Compressed Natural Gas).

The meeting also covered issues such as the development of infrastructure and expansion of supply points in the city, enabling more customers to access natural gas, the commitment to innovative solutions such as renewable gas, and the need to continue in close collaboration to advance in both technical contributions and corporate social responsibility projects in Albacete.
