A New Infographic Too to Aid Members’ Sales Efforts

NGVAmerica’s Emissions and Environmental working group has completed a white paper and infographic highlighting the benefits of natural gas as a fuel for fleets.

The association is circulating the Fleets Run Cleaner on Natural Gas white paper “to provide an NGV industry supported consensus document on the benefits of switching to natural gas.”


NGVAmerica describes the seven-page Fleets Run Cleaner on Natural Gas white paper as ‘an NGV industry-supported consensus document on the benefits of switching to natural gas.’

NGVAmerica describes the seven-page Fleets Run Cleaner on Natural Gas white paper as ‘an NGV industry-supported consensus document on the benefits of switching to natural gas.’

The infographic summarizes environmental benefits, while the white paper goes into more detail and provides definitions, assumptions and sources for the working group’s results.

The Meeting in Denver

NGVAmerica said it “hopes that these documents serve as a source for its members and the industry at large when discussing the benefits of using natural gas vehicles.”

Nearly 300 NGV industry leaders gathered in Denver earlier this month for NGVAmerica’s 28th Annual Meeting and Industry Summit. A variety of speakers provided including insight on industry mergers and gave perspectives on the current and future NGV sales market.

Volkswagen Opportunity?

Other topics included an update on the 2016 fall elections, innovation in the broader automotive industry, “and provocative insight on the future of America’s energy security.”

NGVAmerica’s State Advocacy and Technology & Develop ment committees hosted workshops on growing the market for LNG and explaining how the Volkswagen settlement may bring new funding opportunities for natural gas vehicles.

CEC Offers Money for Off-Road NGVs

Existing Heavy Duty NGV Gear to be Adapted for Off-Road Use
In the Los Angeles Area & Central Valley, and at Ports & Bases

California’s South Coast (i.e. the Los Angeles area), the Central valley, ports and military bases are the emphases as the California Commission is offering $4 million to support R&D into off-road natural gas vehicles. The goal is to apply existing commercial technology for heavy duty NGVs to the off-road sector.

CEC-logo-since1975-119x107CEC notes that “the state’s most severely polluted regions, the San Joaquin Valley and the South Coast air basins, require extensive deployment of zero- and near-zero-emission technologies to meet current and future clean air standards.”

Projects funded under the new grant funding opportunity, Off-Road Heavy-Duty Natural Gas Vehicle Research and Development (GFO-16-501) “should incorporate advanced low emission engine technology currently available for heavy-duty on-road vehicles.


Two Workshops this Month

“Existing advanced natural gas engine technologies could be adapted to provide this market segment with a natural gas engine option capable of exceeding current, Tier 4, emission regulations while simultaneously meeting the performance needs of off-road applications,” the agency says.

  • CEC is holding a workshop at the South Coast Air Quality Management District office in Diamond Bar on the morning of Tuesday, July 26.
  • CEC is holding a workshop at the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District office in Modesto on the morning of Friday, July 29.

“Specifically, this solicitation will focus on heavy-duty off-road vehicles that are used in distribution hubs, including but not limited to ports, freight facilities, military hubs, commodity yards and agricultural locations,” the agency states.

The deadline to submit written questions is August 1.

GFO-16-501 applications are due September 9.
