The paper uses Stockholm County as a case study to guide our analysis. The region not only concentrates the largest number of inhabitants in Sweden but also holds alone around 35% of the Swedish fleet of passenger cars using gas as fuel. The region's potential vehicle gas demands are 460 GWh by 2020 and 1202 GWh by 2030. The methodological approach relies on Network Theory to guide the numerical analysis of the vehicle gas supply chain in the region. Our results show that natural gas will keep on being an important resource and playing a vital role within the local vehicle gas supply chain but no longer as a backup fuel against upgraded biogas shortages. In fact, natural gas has become a price regulator responsible for vehicle gas attractiveness, especially for passenger cars in the region. As a result, phasing out natural gas could hamper future developments of biogas supply chain in the country, hindering the achievement of a green fleet. 2019-08-28T16:51:12Z 2019-08-28T16:51:12Z 2015-11 article publishedVersion https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0960148115300288#! http://hdl.handle.net/10818/36910 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.renene.2015.06.006 eng Renewable Energy Volume 83, November 2015, Pages 1187-1199 Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/ openAccess application/pdf Renewable Energy Universidad de La Sabana Intellectum Repositorio Universidad de La Sabana
