dc.description.abstractThe Electric, Hybrid and Natural Gas Vehicles (NGV) help to significantly improve the air quality and contribute to the implementation of the European directives for development of comprehensive alternative fuels strategy adopted as from April 2014 with its Climate & Energy Package (Green Paper). The 2030 policy framework aims further low carbon economy and optimised performance of bio fuels. Car makers worldwide have recently developed contemporary technologies in the production of new generation green vehicles. But what opportunities have the owners of old conventional vehicles? The answer is remediation. Remediation is a process of conversion of vehicles with gasoline (or diesel) internal combustion engines into hybrids. The implementation of the 5th generation Liquefied Propane Direct Injection (LPDI) retrofit kit with an optional hybrid conversion kit is the focus of this thesis because it is a good option for car owners with limited or low living standards. Bulgaria is among the poorest member countries of the European community therefore the analyses in this paper for implementation of cost effective retrofit kits for vehicle remediation concern this local market only. This research finds out that Bulgarians who own vehicles aging from 10 to 30 years reveal positive attitude towards the green conversion, and depending upon their price perceptions it might be feasible to develop services for implementation of LPDI system with an optional hybrid retrofit kit.en_US
