    Coal is not near as clean burning as natural gas in generating electricity and natural gas can be used in cars, buses, semis, etc. once a decent delivery system can be made.

    CNG is not the future for transportation. It has limited availibilty, and requires significantly larger tanks to support the high pressures needed for compression. Plus, the conversion is expensive. It can work for taxis and buses in urban areas. However, it's not a viable alternative for semis that travel over the road.

    Hence my saying they need to develop a delivery system for highway use.The main use is generating electricity.

    That is highly unlikely to happen. The short term goal is electrification, and the long term goal is hydrogen. In all likihood, no one will be willing to invest in a CNG system for over the road use when they will have to do it all over again when hydrogen becomes viable.
