Click here to register for ACT Expo 2016. And don’t forget that ACT Expo 2016 presentation abstracts are due February 15.

Leading advanced transportation suppliers will be on hand to unveil and display today’s latest innovations and next generation technologies –OEMs, suppliers of motors, equipment and fuel, and of fueling and electric vehicle charging infrastructure.

The deadline for early bird discount registrations for the full ACT Expo 2016 conference and exhibition hall – fleet registration at just $325 and general registration at $550 – is February 26.

The deadline to submit abstracts for ACT Expo 2016 conference presentations is February 15.

ACT Expo 2016 is co-hosted in Long Beach this year with the Electric Drive Transportation Association, the Propane Education & Research Council, and the California Hydrogen Business Council. ACT Expo is organized by Fleets & Fuels publisher GNA – Gladstein, Neandross & Associates.

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.

Hands-On Access

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.

Co-Located Events

“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.

Organizations hosting co-located events throughout the week of ACT Expo include

  • Businesses for Social Responsibility (BSR);
  • California Hydrogen Business Council (CHBC);
  • Electric Drive Transportation Association (EDTA);
  • National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC);
  • North American Council on Freight Efficiency (NACFE);
  • University of California, Davis; and
  • WTS International.

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.”

EDTA Again at ACT Expo in May 2016

November 11, 2015 in ACT Expo 2016, Conference/Meeting, Electric Drive, event, EVs, EVSE, fuel cells, Hybrids, Hydrogen by Rich Piellisch  |  No Comments

‘Members Represent the Entire Value Chain of Electric Drive’

The Washington, D.C.-based Electric Drive Transportation Association is again throwing in its lot with the Advanced Clean Transportation Expo, combining its annual exhibition with ACT Expo for the second year running. ACT Expo 2016 takes place May 2-5 in Long Beach, Calif.

EDTA president Genevieve Cullen tells why
her organization sees ACT Expo 2016 as the place to be.

EDTA is the cross-industry trade association that has been promoting the advancement of electric drive technology and electrified transportation since 1989 and a proud partner of the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo. Our members represent the entire value chain of electric drive, including vehicle manufacturers, battery and component manufacturers, utilities and energy companies, smart grid and charging infrastructure developers. Collectively, we are committed to realizing the economic, national security, and environmental benefits of displacing oil with hybrid, plug-in hybrid, battery, and fuel cell electric vehicles.

EDTA president Genevieve Cullen

EDTA president Genevieve Cullen

Diversifying transportation with domestic alternatives will enhance our energy security, protect consumers and the economy from price volatility, and increase U.S. competitiveness in the global clean energy markets.

Cheaper, Cleaner, Quieter

Around one-third of the oil we use is imported, costing our economy roughly $192 billion annually. Even with reduced imports, our energy and economic security continue to be threatened by oil dependence. Our transportation sector is still almost wholly fueled by a single commodity, whose price is set by the global market and whose availability is subject to significant geopolitical uncertainty. In addition to national and global benefits, electrification offers fleet operators the benefits of cheaper, cleaner and quieter operation. As automakers expand their commitment to electrification, fleet operators have access to vehicles of diverse sizes, price points and capabilities from nearly every major manufacturer.

There are also growing opportunities to electrify the medium- and heavy-duty fleets across the nation. The EIA projects that, in the U.S., heavy-duty vehicles will see the fastest increases in energy demand among all transportation modes from 2010 to 2040. Increased efficiency and fuel diversity in this segment will have a significant impact on fleet fuel consumption and emissions, and electrification offers flexibility in meeting regulatory requirements.

The EV Infrastructure Is Coming Together

Electric drive infrastructure is growing exponentially to meet the diverse charging needs of the driving public. Collaborative efforts between private industry, government and utility partners are accelerating national and regional charging infrastructure deployment to serve individual, business and municipal users of electric drive. In addition to ubiquitous home charging infrastructure, there are currently over 11,000 publically available stations with a projected 1.5 million locations to be available by 2017. Large and small employers are increasingly offering charging options for their employees.

In addition to their operational and emissions benefits, electric drive offers fleet operators certainty in fuel costs. While oil prices may be low today, businesses are all too aware of oil price volatility and the challenges it can pose for a company with an oil powered fleet. Electricity prices are substantially lower than petroleum fuels –– and they are stable. Domestically-produced grid electricity, on average, can power plug-in cars at the equivalent of $1 per gallon of gasoline – roughly 3.13 cents per mile.

EVS29 in Montreal in June

Transforming the way we move people and goods and reducing our dependence on oil requires new ways of thinking, planning and operating. EDTA is excited to be part of the continuing dialogue at the ACT Expos, including next year’s event in Long Beach. We also invite you to join us for a global exchange on these leading edge technologies as EDTA hosts the 29th World Electric Vehicle Symposium (EVS29), June 19-22, 2016 in Montreal, Quebec.
