Momentum from Paris
“Building off the exciting momentum from the Paris Climate Conference, hundreds of public and private-sector organizations will convene at ACT Expo as they work to develop the transportation elements of their sustainability plans and their strategies to reduce vehicle emissions and costs,” said Erik Neandross, CEO at GNA.
“By teaming up with the leading clean vehicle technology industry associations, we are able to bring all fuels, and all advanced technologies under one roof,” he said.
ACT Expo attendees will gain hands-on access to the wide range of today’s available clean transportation solutions – including electric, hybrid, hydrogen, natural gas, propane autogas, renewable fuels, advanced efficiency technologies, telematics, and connected vehicles.
“From vehicles, to motors, equipment, fuel, fueling infrastructure, and more – today’s latest innovations and next generation technologies will be unveiled and on display,” GNA says.
“For the busy fleet executive, we provide an ultra-efficient one-stop-shop for all of the latest advanced transportation technology in the marketplace today and coming out tomorrow,” Neandross said.
The ACT Expo 2016 program will provide a platform for fleet operators, local governments, and other key stakeholders to share case studies on how alternative fuels and vehicle efficiency technologies are improving the environmental performance and sustainability of their operations, reducing costs, helping mitigate the impact of volatile petroleum prices, and driving business growth.

EVSE Webinar January 12
Can’t wait? Want to learn more about EVSE/electric vehicle supply equipment (aka EV chargers)? Take advantage of a sneak preview of the programming offered at ACT Expo 2016 by joining us for the first of ACT Expo webinar series on January 12: Shaking Things Up in EVSEs: A Discussion on Roaming, Pricing Models, Fleet Applications, and Inductive Charging. The webinar takes place at 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern time.
“With electric vehicles finally moving past the early adopter stage,” GNA says, “we find ourselves confronted with major infrastructure challenges.”
The complimentary one-hour webinar, presented in concert with EDTA, “will highlight what we can expect from the electric vehicle charging infrastructure industry, including issues of ‘roaming’ and being able to pay by credit card, pricing structures, challenges and the promise of inductive charging, and fleet applications.”
