‘Gains Across Entire Spectrum of Clean & Advanced Transportation Options’
As Organizers Prepare for Historic Two-in-One Event in California in Early May
The agenda for the 2014 Alternative Clean Transportation Expo has been released, reflecting a fleet-focused program crafted with input from Frito-Lay, the City of Los Angeles, GE Capital, Penske, Pacific Gas & Electric, UPS, Coca-Cola, and Ryder System.
Also participating with organizer (and Fleets & Fuels publisher) Gladstein, Neandross & Associates in ACT Expo agenda development were a U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities committee, and international alternative fuel industry associations – fitting as ACT Expo 2014 is co-located with the 14th biennial NGV Global Conference and Exposition – NGV Global 2014, aka the world natural gas vehicles meeting.
The concurrent gatherings run May 5-8 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach (Los Angeles), Calif.
Fuel Cost and Emissions Reductions
With a focus on fuel cost and emissions reductions, ACT Expo 2014 will feature tailored educational sessions, off-site technical tours, an AFV ride-and-drive event, peer-to-peer networking events, and an expansive expo hall, GNA says.
Plenary and breakout sessions will address the latest fueling, equipment, and technology advancements spanning all weight classes and alternative fuel types – including electric, hybrid, natural gas, propane autogas, and renewables. Leading public and private fleet operators will share key lessons learned from their clean transportation initiatives. Leading experts, executives and policy makers will convene in plenary sessions to share their insight on the future of the ever-diversifying transportation sector.
“We are seeing gains across the entire spectrum of clean and advanced transportation options,” said Erik Neandross, CEO at GNA. “Records are being set in electric vehicles sales, and the momentum continues in heavy-duty natural gas trucks.”
One Ticket Fits All
“Hydrogen fuel cell cars are emerging, at last, as a viable option, and biofuels are benefiting from technology gains and superior, evolved policies,” Neandross said in a GNA release. “Propane autogas is solidifying its gains in key markets, both by vehicle type and geographically – sales of LPG vehicles doubled last year, says a recent forecast, and could reach 40,000 annually by 2020.”
One registration gains entrance to the two conferences, as well as full access to an exhibition occupying all three LBCC halls – 3,500 attendees are expected.
