Agenda Announced for 2014 Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo

North America's largest clean fleet expo will examine case studies from the world's most progressive fleet operators, spanning all alternative fuels and vehicle weight classes.

SANTA MONICA, Calif.—Jan. 7, 2014—Gladstein, Neandross and Associates (GNA), organizers of the 2014 Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, today released the agenda for the four-day event taking place May 5–8 at the Long Beach Convention Center.The fleet-focused program was crafted with input from high-volume fleets, including Frito-Lay, City of Los Angeles, GE Capital, Penske, Pacific Gas & Electric, UPS, Coca-Cola, Ryder System, and many others, as well as a US Department of Energy Clean Cities committee, and international alternative fuel industry associations.


With a focus on fuel-cost and emission 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. 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, renewable fuels, and advanced technologies. Leading public and private fleet operators will share key lessons learned from their clean transportation initiatives. In addition, the industry's leading experts 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."

Neandross continued, "Hydrogen fuel cell cars are emerging, at last, as a viable option, and biofuels are benefiting from technology gains and superior, evolved policies. 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."

ACT Expo 2014 is co-located with the 14th biennial NGV Global Conference and Exposition, giving attendees full access to sessions focused on the rapidly evolving global natural gas market. More than 3,500 stakeholdersare expected to gather in Southern California—fleets, technology companies, OEMs, infrastructure developers, fuel providers, and policy makers—making this the largest sustainable transportation event in North America.

Sponsored by nearly 200 leading equipment manufacturers, technology providers and fuels suppliers, the co-located conferences will host some of the top names and leaders across the alternative fuels and clean vehicle technologies arena. Keynotes and speakers will be announced soon.
