Rural Development

As relatively few rural or remote areas can benefit from piped natural gas, LPG is an ideal power source for these areas, either as a primary source or in combination with renewable energy.

LPG is an integrated part of the energy landscape in rural areas on every continent. It is used in industry, on farms, at home, in hotels, restaurants, cars and just about anywhere where reliable, clean and safe energy is needed.

In both developed and developing countries,
LPG provides tailored energy solutions that fit local needs.


LPG allows household in the developing world to move away from cooking with polluting and harmful fuels. This switch has a fundamental impact on health, especially for women and children and the saves time that can be used for economic activity.


Millions of houses are still heated with solid or polluting liquid fuels. LPG offers a realistic, proven solution that has an immediate impact on air quality.


Many types of manufacturing depend on reliable energy. In rural areas, not connected to the natural gas grid, LPG offers a perfect solution where energy can be stored on-site. In many cases, using LPG also reduces maintenance costs and down-time compared to liquid fuels.


In many countries, Autogas is a cost-effective transport fuel. This allows people who live in the countryside, where public transport options are limited, to keep their fuel bill in check.


Many smaller businesses from bakers to restaurants and rural hotels rely on LPG for their energy needs.


LPG powers a range of agricultural applications, from grain drying to irrigation and weeding. LPG can be transported to even the most remote farm and will never cause soil pollution.
