In view of the ongoing energy revolution in the automobile industry, the DLPGOVP aims to position the LPG sector as a major player in this revolution through the Auto Gas Project.
We intend to achieve this by:
- Growing the use of Auto Gas as a transportation fuel.
- Coordinating the efforts and leveraging on the experience of its members in this respect.
- Encouraging technology development and safety enhancement to support sustainable business growth.
- Acting as a communications and information center for the benefit of members and the wider Auto Gas and transportation community.
The DLPGOVP is committed towards developing markets for LPG in Nigeria and making recommendations for future growth.
In arriving at our findings and formulating resolutions, we intend taking the following steps:
- Further explore the national market outlook with the growth of the LPG power generation sector.
- Identify the likely challenges and threats which are likely to be present in the markets which are most promising for LGP power generation (e.g lack of natural gas infrastructure, high electricity tariffs, etc).
- Provide clear guidance and recommendations to LPG stakeholders (Government, associations, suppliers, manufacturers, etc) on steps that can be taken to maximize the opportunities to grow the LPG Power Generation
DLPGOVP promotes technology and encourages member’s exchange on technology and innovation related to LPG.
Upgrade to Gas
Upgrade to Gas
UPGRADE TO GAS is a campaign of the DLPGOVP in partnership with Africare. It aims to facilitate the transition of Nigerians from cooking with traditional fuels as well as other dirty and dangerous fuels to cleaner-burning LPG by the year 2025.
This is necessitated by the devastating impact of reliance on traditional cooking fuels such as firewood, charcoal and animal dung. The debilitating effects of these practices include:
Death from lower respiratory infections as well as damage to vital organs due to exposure to indoor air pollution caused by traditional fuels.
Over 70% of the population still rely on solid fuels for cooking on primitive stoves or open fires despite current advances in technology and innovations to uplift their standard of living.
The rate of deforestation especially in the northern part of the country has taken its toll on the ecosystem and exposed several rural communities to adverse weather conditions and desert encroachment. Switching a hundred households from consuming 200 tonnes of harvested wood a year to 1.8 tonnes of LPG would annually save one hectare of forest.
