Gas Energy Australia is the national peak body, which represents the bulk of the downstream alternative gaseous fuels industry, which covers Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). The industry comprises major companies and small to medium businesses in the gaseous fuels supply chain including producers, refiners, distributors, transporters, retailers, vehicle, manufacturers, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, installers, educators and consultants. While most of GEA's members are focused on LPG, LNG and CNG, some are involved in the hydrogen industry.
