More Than 3,000 Attendees Are Expected in Long Beach
The 2016 Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo is underway at Southern California’s Long Beach Convention Center. More than 3,000 are expected to attend North America’s the largest clean fleet event, co-hosted with the Electric Drive Transportation Association, NGVAmerica, the Propane Education & Research Council, the North American Council for Freight Efficiency, and the California Hydrogen Business Council.
The gathering runs May 2-5. Penske Truck Leasing is the 2016 presenting sponsor.
“ACT Expo brings the entire transportation industry together for an expansive showcase of the technologies, fuels, policies, and organizations driving innovation and sustainability on our roadways,” says organizer (and Fleets & Fuels publisher) GNA – Gladstein, Neandross & Associates.
“With worldwide momentum building to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels and lessen our impact on our planet, we’re excited to bring more than 3,000 industry stakeholders together to discuss the policies, trends, and technologies driving the future of transportation,” GNA CEO Erik Neandross said in a release today.
‘A One-Stop Shop’
“ACT Expo provides attendees a one-stop shop to discover the wide-range of options that can help fleet operators reduce fuel costs and emissions—including zero-emission vehicles, low carbon fuels, autonomous and connected vehicles, fuel efficiency technologies, and more.”
Throughout the week, public and private fleet operators will share insight into the business case behind their commitment to deploying low carbon and renewable fuels and advanced technology vehicles and expanding infrastructure – despite the current dip in oil prices. “Attendees will have the opportunity to hear how organizations from all corners of the transportation industry are using alternative fuels to mitigate the impact of volatile petroleum prices, proactively reduce emissions and improve environmental and cost performance, and drive business growth,” GNA says.
The Act Expo 2016 exhibit hall, which opens on the evening of May 3, will include displays representing all alternative fuel types – including natural gas, electric, hybrid, hydrogen, propane autogas, and renewable fuels. Attendees will gain hands-on access to alternative fuel vehicles and engine OEMs, electric drive vehicles, EV charging stations, refueling technology and fueling infrastructure, conversion products and service providers, equipment and technology providers, trucking efficiency solutions, fleet management telematics and GPS providers.
