The Greater Houston Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) Alliance, a non-profit corporation, was formed in August 2009 by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, Apache Corporation, Southwestern Energy and CenterPoint Energy, in partnership with the University of Houston Hobby Center for Public Policy. What makes the Alliance unique is its blend of university and private sector expertise.
On the one hand, the University of Houston, with participants from UH Energy, is uniquely situated to provide independent analysis of various questions of interest to members. But, on the other, the private sector membership has the “on the ground” knowledge to provide the necessary information that supports research and outreach efforts.
Our mission is to focus on developing new and expanding natural gas transportation markets and refueling stations in the Greater Houston area using industry initiatives, government programs, energy education and community relations.
