New body enters energy sector

Gas Energy Australia (GEA) has been formed to consolidate the advocacy, policy and technical development profile of the downstream LPG, CNG and LNG industries.

Chairman of the GEA board of directors Graham Smith said the organisation will provide the gaseous fuels industry and key stakeholders with a common point of liaison for policy development.

“Australia’s energy security and carbon reduction policies rest, in part, on the vital role alternative fuels like LPG, CNG and LNG play in the transport, residential and industrial markets,” Mr Smith said.

“Gas Energy Australia will also provide media communications and information management services to its members and associates, from its secretariat offices in Canberra – located within close proximity of the nation’s decision makers and policy advisors.”

GEA was formed on October 15, 2012.
